JAZZ | Shared Genes 

Some fathers and sons bond by going fishing; others go to the ball game. But judging by their musical bond, Sam Nicolosi started playing guitar with his son Ted at an early age. The result is Shared Genes. When it comes to finger-style guitar, they are adept at re-creating the sounds of Australian guitarist Tommy Emmanuel or Acoustic Alchemy, but the duo's large and varied song list ranges from Beatles classics like "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" to acoustic renditions of surfing songs by The Ventures. They can even take a forgettable song — The Four Seasons' "Sherry" — and make it rich in texture and melody. When Ted goes solo on a tune like "Billie Jean," the arrangement is so complex that he breathes new life into the song.

Shared Genes plays Tuesday, January 8, 6-9 p.m. at Bistro 135, 135 Commercial St., East Rochester. No cover with dinner. 662-5555, bistro135.net.
