Man, these guys must like it here, because they're back in town for a show on February 12 at the Mercury Ballroom It's Here Come The Mummies, the band of alleged Nashville studio cats who cover their identies so they won't get in trouble with various music industry types in NashVegas. Whatever. They can flat-out pick. Check with the Mercury for ticket info.

Saxophonist Donny McCaslin has recently come to the attention of many outside the jazz world as the bandleader for David Bowie’s final album, Blackstar. He has long been respected in the jazz world, having played professionally since his teen years. Over time, he played with luminaries such as Gary Burton and the Maria Schneider Jazz Orchestra, as well as performing and recording with his own band. His most recent album, Fast Future, has been describes as “Jazz meets EDM.” He comes to town for a concert at the Clifton Center on Friday, February 12, joining local luminaries Craig Wagner (guitar), Chris Fitzgerald (bass), and Mike Hyman (drums). McCaslin was kind enough to reply to Louisville Music News’ e-mail inquirm and it turns out he and Hyman have known one another for years. Well let McCaslin pick up from here:"I remember listening to Mike Hyman as a teenager in California when Mike lived in San Francisco. The great bassist Larry Grenadier would play me bootleg tapes of gigs he did with Mike and Joe Henderson, who's one of my main heroes of the Tenor Saxophone. A few years later in college at Berklee School of Music, I joined Gary Burton's quintet and would listen to recordings Mike did during his tenure in the band. I had a few chances to play with him in New York City and am looking forward the chance to play again Friday night! Chris and Craig I've yet to meet, but am sure they're excellent musicians. Part of being a jazz musician is participating in the common language we share and draw inspiration from. That common language helps to inform these situations were, even though we don't know each other well, we can come together and prepare a program that'll give each musician an opportunity to tell their story. I'll be presenting a mix of original music and standards. Given that we haven't played together, the standards help us find common ground."Asked to recommend one of his videos on youtube, he sent a link to https://youtu.be/JOhOjMQLOfQ, but remarked “I like this one . . . but I won't be playing music this edgy on Friday . . ..” This concert is a don’t-miss for dyed in the wool jazz fans, as well as folks who have come to McCaslin recently by way of his work with Bowie. Tickets are $15/$5 students.

The Valentine's Concert with the Louisville Orchestra, featuring Kristin Chenoweth, combines three solid -and potent -  elements: a full orchestra, Valentine's Day (et amor) and the dazzling Kristen Chenoweth, star of stage, film and television. An Emmy and Tony winner, Chenoweth is also a comedienne with a stack of jokes to go with her stack of songs, including some from Wicked, Glee, On The Twentieth Century, plus popular standards and classics from Broadway and Hollywood. All of that at Whitney Hall, Kentucky Center, of February 13. Mary-Mitchell Campbell will conduct. Tickets are $35 and up. Here, she sings "I Will Always Love You":

Way back in 1981, punk rockers The Queers were outrageous just because they dared to use that word for their name. How times have changed; it's not even a little outraqeous, just nostalgic, for their fans. What is outrageous is front man Joe Queer's defense of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, which has brought some serious push-back. They're touring in support of their eleventh album, Back to the Basement. They call it the Beyond the Valley tour. They'll be at Headliners on Valentine's Day; tickets are $10/$12. Here's a recent video:
