Listening Back: Brian Jones

In Listening Back, we chronicle the happenings at The Camel’s free weekly jazz series on Tuesday nights. Be there if you can. But if you can’t, stop by here every Saturday for a recap in sights and sounds. This week, Brian Jones continued the series with two of his groups.

Three reasons to visit Balliceaux this week

Balliceaux is the place to be this week. On Wednesday night, Ombak makes their return, this time with JC Kuhl. They’ll be playing tunes from their new album, and it’s guaranteed to get a little crazy.
