JAZZ | Joe Locke 

On the first cut of his superb new album, "Lay Down My Heart," Joe Locke enters the slow groove of "Ain't No Sunshine" with the melody and then proceeds to take it for beautiful flight. The Rochester native, who graced the stage of Jenks n' Jones and other long-gone local clubs in the late 1970's, is now one of the world's greatest vibraphonists. On his 33rd album Locke offers excellent originals and a variety of standards, but his most sensitive performance comes on the tune that supplies the album's title, "I Can't Make You Love Me." Locke will explore the album and more when he brings his top-notch group — Ryan Cohan, piano; Jaimeo Brown, drums; and Lorin Cohen, bass — to the Exodus To Jazz series.

Joe Locke performs Saturday, April 20, 8 p.m. at Hochstein School of Music, 50 N. Plymouth Ave. $25-$42.
