Turtle Island Quartet with Nellie McKay 

When: Tue., Oct. 29, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $28-46
Founded in 1985, the Turtle Island Quartet sat then at the leading edge of chamber ensembles embracing popular genres. They've continued to delve into the Jimi Hendrix and John Coltrane songbooks. Here, they join forces with singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and actor Nellie McKay to present an evening of Billie Holiday, Billy Strayhorn, and the Weimar cabaret of the 1920s. Indulgent party music as a collapsing superpower consumes itself? Sounds perfect. —Chris Vitiello
