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.
