It takes tuba
Snazzy jazzists invade Charlottesville! The Charlottesville Jazz Society and the University of Virginia Arts Administration bring tuba master Bill Cole and multi-instrumentalist Joseph Daley to Cabell Hall for one concert. Though Cole and Evans compose highly-regarded jazz delicacies, they have, oddly, never performed together as a duet before. Finely-distilled jazz connoisseurs will relish this opportunity to witness the pairing of didgeridoo and tuba. $5-10, 8pm. UVA Chapel, 1619 University Ave. 249-6191.
Jazz talents Joseph Daley and Bill Cole (above) raise the roof at UVA Chapel on Thursday.
