Music worth leaving the house to hear this week

Fundraiser for Museum Education Programs with Jane Bunnett & the Havana Spirits, Duke University Jazz Quintet
N.C. Museum of Art
Wednesday, Oct. 8
7 p.m.

Don't let her blond pigtails fool you: Canadian Jane Bunnett is a flute and soprano sax virtuoso who leads one of the most innovative and technically polished bands in Latin Jazz. She travels to Cuba regularly to collaborate with traditional music legends like Merceditas Valdes, Pancho Quinto and Los Munequitos de Matanzas. Bunnett builds new bridges between straight-ahead jazz and folkloric music by leaving both idioms intact, and dovetailing them in ways we haven't heard before. Bunnett's husband Larry Kramer (trumpet), the quietly phenomenal Hilario Duran (piano) and various Cuban percussionists make up the ensemble. The Duke University Jazz Quintet opens the show on the museum lawn. Among the prizes to be raffled off (with the price of admission) are a two-year lease on a Lincoln luxury sedan, and a Museum of Art season pass for free admission to a year's worth of movies, concerts and exhibitions. Call 715-5923. $60 single tickets or $100 per pair -- Sylvia Pfeiffenberger

Susan Tedeschi, Jackie Green
Carolina Theater
Durham
Saturday, Oct. 11
8 p.m.

"I don't really know how to describe what I do," says Susan Tedeschi. "I just sing. I play guitar too, but the singing aspect is more of a gospel approach to singing over blues or country or R & B or soul music." Her Freddy King approach to guitar and Janis Joplin-esque vocals earned her a Grammy nomination in 2000. Her new album, Wait For Me, features husband (and Allman Brothers guitarist) Derek Trucks and his band. -- Grant Britt
