Ted Ludwig.

TED LUDWIG QUINTET
5 p.m., Capital Bar and Grill. Free.
8:30 p.m., Afterthought. $7.

Arkansas's (the region's?) finest jazz trio expands its ranks on Wednesday in the first of a two-night, four-gig CD release party to celebrate Ted Ludwig's sophomore release, “Shabang!”. Since moving here three years ago, the New Orleans transplant has almost single-handedly reinvigorated our jazz scene. A seven-string whiz, he gigs five days a week, usually with his sturdy three-piece, which includes bassist Joe Cripps and drummer Brian Brown. For “Shabang!” Ludwig recruited a couple homeboys, who also happen to be two of New Orleans finest, pianist Michael Pellera and saxophonist Tony Dagradi, who's made his name as the leader of the Astral Project. Pellera and Dagradi will appear at all four gigs. Same places, same times on Thursday.

  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
