In jazz


Enjoy an evening of swinging jazz standards in the big-band tradition when legendary jazz trumpeter Maynard Ferguson comes to the Triangle. Ferguson, leading a 10-piece group, is one of those jazz artists who has occasionally crossed over into mainstream consciousness--who can forget his powerhouse blowing on "Gonna Fly Now," the theme from Rocky? These days, after close to 50 years in the biz, Ferguson still has the chops, but opts to play more traditional jazz fare. He'll be appearing Wednesday, April 10, 8 p.m., at the Carolina Theatre in Durham. Call 560-3030 for details.
