JAZZ | Colossus 

When Dave Chisholm came up with the name Colossus he was waiting for the right group. Like its descriptive name suggests, Colossus is a rather large ensemble. It's a big band that's heavy on brass and dwarfs others in comparison. The 17-member orchestra is co-led by composer-performers Dave Chisholm (trumpet), Mike Conrad (trombone), and Levi Saelua (woodwinds), and among its missions — like the U.S.S. Enterprise — is to boldly go where no jazz band has gone before. Colossus offers up a cerebral modern jazz twist on the big-band sound. This concert is the group's third gig at the Bug Jar. To paraphrase the big man on the TV, it's gonna be huge. With Mr. Boneless, and The Reactions.

Colossus performs Friday, May 3, 9 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $6-$8.
