Saluting Zawinul

The eighth concert of the Cal Haines Tribute Trio’s 12-concert series, which pays homage to a different jazz legend each month, brings pianist John Rangel, bassist Michael Glynn and drummer Haines back to Albuquerque after a three-concert Santa Fe sojourn. This month, they honor the legacy of keyboardist Joe Zawinul, whose career stretched from Cannonball Adderley’s band, through Miles Davis’ fusion years, to Weather Report (cofounded by Zawinul), and on into electronic explorations and classical symphonic music. The trio says they’ll focus on his earlier acoustic material, but Weather Report fans won’t be disappointed: The trio also plans to acknowledge Zawinul’s fusion muse. The show happens tonight at 7 p.m. at the Albuquerque Center for Spiritual Living (2801 Louisiana NE). Tickets are $15. For complete information, check out tributetrio.com.
