ASTRAL PROJECT
8 p.m., Afterthought. $12 adv., $15 d.o.s.

If you consider yourself a jazz lover or admirer — hell, even if you're curious in the slightest — you must, repeat, must catch the Astral Project at the Afterthought at least once before you die. Lately, the New Orleans-based quartet has been in town a couple times a year, and half of them came last year to play with the Ted Ludwig Trio for the release shows for the trio's sophomore album (Ludwig grew up in New Orleans and studied under the Astral Project's Steve Masakowski). But who knows how long the band will keep up that pace in visiting Little Rock? They've certainly earned license to do whatever strikes them. Together since 1978, the group, which includes saxophonist Tony Dagradi, guitarist Masakowski, bassist James Singleton and drummer Johnny Vidacovich, has long been regarded as the Crescent City's premier modern jazz act. Venerable jazz mag OffBeat even called them “one of the most unique jazz groups period.” Live, they swing like no other. Don't miss out.
