Happy Music, Happy Apple (1/30)

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008

Named after a child's toy from the 1960s, jazz trio Happy Apple performs at Nighttown in Cleveland Heights this Wednesday night.Hailing from Minneapolis, their clever and melodic small-combo improvisations have been termed "jazz punk," but Happy Apple has a grasp of the entire history of jazz, and the trio's elegant free-bop compositions are full of haunting melodies, delightful flashes of humor, and intelligent, coherent construction. Things can get hot and searing, certainly, and there is no aversion to sonic and free jazz experimenting, but the band always retains a strong melodic center. www.myspace.com/happyapplejerks
