JAZZ | Rick Holland Little Big Band 

Turns out you don't need 76 trombones and a full complement of trumpets and saxophones to knock off your socks. Just listen to the Rick Holland Little Big Band. With arrangements reminiscent of Gil Evans' "Birth Of The Cool" session, this band packs a punch. Along with works by contemporary arrangers like Brent Wallarab, Kerry Strayer, and Bill Dobbins, Holland turns to classics by Duke Ellington, Alec Wilder, and Gerry Mulligan. All of them feature excellent solos by some of Rochester's finest players.

Rick Holland Little Big Band performs Sunday, March 30, 7 p.m. at Lovin' Cup, 300 Park Point Drive. Free. 292-9940, lovincup.com.
