ARKANSAS JAZZ HALL OF FAME
8 p.m., The Afterthought. $20 adv., $25 d.o.s.

Happening only once every two years, the Arkansas Jazz Hall of Fame induction ceremony remains a must-do for state jazz aficionados. This time, the organization honors two native Arkansans for their contributions to the genre. The late Jerry Atkins, saxophonist, jazz writer for Down Beat, Metronome, Coda, and host of the "Enjoyment of Jazz" radio show for 22 years, will be added to the ranks alongside Amina Claudine Myers, whose gospel-infused piano stylings have placed her beside jazz notables such as Bill Laswell, Zoot Sims and the Art Ensemble of Chicago. The night includes performances by 1998 Jazz Hall of Fame inductee Roseanne Vitro and Afterthought regulars Joe Vick, Tom Cox and Dave Rogers.
