Hear shiny stockings now!
Saxophonist Doug Lawrence leads a quartet playing in the latest Santa Fe Music Collective concert at 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 12.

His bandmates for this concert, presented at the Museum Hill Café (710 Camino Lejo), are pianist Bert Dalton, bassist Maren Hatch, and drummer John Trentacosta. They are expected to perform “Shiny Stockings” by Frank Foster, “Jumpin’ at the Woodside” by Count Basie, the Eddie Heywood tune “Canadian Sunset,” which was popularized by Gene Ammons, and several songs by Dexter Gordon and other past masters of bebop.
