JAZZ | The Rita Collective 

When Rage Against The Machine wrote "Killing In The Name," the rap-metal band could not possibly have imagined that the tune would be played urgently by a smartly dressed quartet featuring bass clarinet and marimba. The Rita Collective will not only surprise you with unlikely covers like Michael Jackson's "Man In The Mirror," it will also impress you with gorgeous originals like leader and bass clarinetist Dean Keller's "Healing." Inspired by a Tunisian oud player (it's a long story), the group creates its own highly original brand of world music. Along with Keller, the collective features Kristen Shiner McGuire on marimba, Kyle Vock on bass and percussionist Joe Parker.

The Rita Collective will perform on Wednesday, Oct. 3, 7 p.m. at The Little Theatre Café, 240 East Ave. Free, 258-0400.;
