August 1 and 17. Like many jazzmen, area saxophonist Rob Scheps, who was quoted in last month's feature on drummer Marvin "Bugalu" Smith, also performs in myriad other bands. One of them is Larry Moses & the Latin Jazz Explosion, which is led by trumpeter Moses and also includes saxophonist Mike Migliori, pianist James Ratner, bassist Al Ramos, timbalero Thomas Lopez, and conguero Pito Castillo. True to its name, the organization delivers torrid Latin jazz that puts dancers in a frenzy. The band has a pair of free gigs this month: August 1 at Long Dock Park (6-8:30pm) and August 17 at El Solar in Newburgh (9pm-12am).

    Why and how dare she devote an entire album to songs by Laura Nyro when we can just listen to the originals on Spotify? I'll tell you why. Because Christine Spero fully inhabits these songs, uncovers hidden nuances, and with her stunning ensemble—including drummer Peter O'Brien, bassist Scott Petito, saxophonist Elliot Spero, and Christine's own magic hands on the ivories.
