CARAMEL CITY

WITH AL STRONG

THE POUR HOUSE, RALEIGH

THURSDAY, DEC. 10

Co-founder privilege comes into play at this month's installment of Art of Cool and 9th Wonder's collaborative soul series, Caramel City. And why shouldn't it? This go-round's featured performer, trumpeter Al Strong, helped launch the Art of Cool Project and has been a stalwart of the Triangle jazz scene for many years. He's also worked as a band member and session musician for swanky acts like The Foreign Exchange, Orquesta GarDel and Soul Understated. This time, backed by noble local noise boys Zoocrü and joined by several singers (Heather Victoria, Laura Reed and Rissi Palmer), he steps into a spotlight of his own, just ahead of the January arrival of his debut LP, Love-Strong, Vol. 1. A week after the album's release, Strong will take his forte to the Revive Music Stage at New York City's annual Winter Jazzfest. But don't expect this show to be as rigid—those jazz hands do some soul claps, too. 8 p.m., $5–$12,

224 S. Blount St., Raleigh, 919-821-1120, www.the-pour-house.com.Eric Tullis

Price: $10-$12
