Friday To-Do: Rodney Block

RODNEY BLOCK
9 p.m., the Afterthought. $7.

The smoothest trumpeter in our neck of the woods, Rodney Block, returns to the Afterthought for a varied night of jazz, soul, funk, gospel, bebop and hip hop. An Arkansas native, Block honed his talent in Kansas City. Since he returned several years back, Block and his band the Real Music Lovers have been moving between the hip-hop and jazz scenes (Block calls his music “hip-hop jazz”), opening for the likes of Dwele, Frank McComb and Wynton Marsalis. Last year, the horn man was nominated for a regional Emmy for his performance on the AETN show “Front Row.” He's sure to impress on Friday.
