Duke Jazz Ensemble: Valentine’s Day Jazz Concert

When: Sun., Feb. 15, 3 p.m. 2015

Jazz and sex share an intimate connection. The word “jazz,” which the American Dialect Society anointed as the “Word of the Twentieth Century,” has shadowy origins. But the commonly accepted source is as a variant of “jasm” (meaning spirit or vigor), which also produced, so to speak, “jism” (meaning semen). Whether or not you take issue with the etymology, this annual Valentine’s Day Jazz Concert is a raucous spectacular, as the Duke Jazz Ensemble, North Carolina Central University Jazz Ensemble and UNC-Chapel Hill Jazz Ensemble caress the romantic hits. —Chris Vitiello
