A weekend of free jazz kicks off on Saturday, and while we’re talking about no-cover jazz—and not necessarily the experimental approach to jazz improvisation pioneers in the ‘50s and ‘60s—don’t be surprised if trumpeter James Suggs channels the wilder sides of Miles, ‘Trane, Monk or Don Cherry at this gig on the Indie's Seminole Heights patio.
The venue still has limited capacity and strict COVID-19 precautions so wear a mask, don’t be an asshole and plan to come back on Sunday when CL favorite Katara Trio brings even more jazz to the spot for Sunday matinee that kicks off at 6:30 p.m.
First Saturday Jazz: James Suggs. Saturday, April 3, 8 p.m No cover. Independent Baar & Café, Tampa. independentbartampa.com
