Sometimes there’s nothing more enjoyable than listening to a cool cat pound out the mellow beats of classic jazz, and nobody does it better than Charles Owens. Fully embracing the blues traditions of the 1930s, the exceptional saxophonist teams up with drummer Devone Harris and bassist Andrew Randazzo to perform smooth riffs of dreamy jazz perfection and promote the form’s groovy freedom and finger-zingin’ fun.

Tuesday 5/20. $5, 7pm. Escafe, 215 Water St. 295-8668.
