Nightlife Highlights

April 3. Did you know April is Jazz Appreciation Month? Yep, we have a month for that, too—which of course we should, for jazz is seen around the world as America’s greatest art form. And this 25th-anniversary concert at Dutchess Community College’s Drumlin Hall by trumpeter/flugelhornist Matt Finley’s Rio JAZZ is a fine way to celebrate. Finley, a former DCC instructor, has been playing for over 50 years; his Brazilian-flavored ensemble also stars pianist Peter Tomlinson, guitarist Jeff Ciampa, bassist Don Miller, drummer Joel Rosenblatt (ex-Spyro Gyra), and percussionist Tomas Martin Lopez. 7:30pm. Free. Poughkeepsie. (845) 431-8050; Riojazz.com.
