De'Sean Jones, The Black Experience, The Real Laww, Toon 

When: Fri., April 6, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $5-7

Detroit's De'Sean Jones is working to change the way jazz is conceived and perceived. The genre-bending saxophonist knows the classics but plays originally, executing his fat tenor with the authority of a craftsman. De'Sean Jones: Septet is due later this year and features slinky guitar riffs and flowing hip-hop delivery. Durham's The Black Experience is also redefining jazz, playing bluesy swing as smooth as Southern Sunday grease. Rappers The Real Laww and Toon, both from Durham, open.

This bill also plays on Thursday night in Raleigh at Kings, joined by Apple Juice Kid's latest creation, the politically motivated multimedia project The Beat Report. —Ashleigh Phillips
