Melissa Aldana, Pablo Menares and Jochen Rueckert

When: Fri., Jan. 22, 8 p.m. 2016

Melissa Aldana stands up and blows her tenor saxophone without trying to change the face of jazz. But she is changing the face of jazz, having won the 2013 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone Competition as a 20-something and by splicing Chilean street music DNA into the bodies of more-or-less straight-ahead standards. Hailed as a torchbearer for Sonny Rollins, Aldana has a clean, approachable sound that works in an exciting array of influences and ideas. —Chris Vitiello
