Guitar man: Greg Ruggiero
Jazz guitarist Greg Ruggiero plays the Museum Hill Café (710 Camino Lejo) at 7 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 16, in a concert presented by the Santa Fe Music Collective. The trio features Ruggiero and bassist Asher Barreras — both musicians came out of the dynamic Albuquerque jazz scene and now work in New York City — and drummer John Trentacosta, a longtime Santa Fean originally from New York. Ruggiero has made music with the likes of saxophonists Frank Morgan and Greg Osby, singer Jane Monheit, and drummer Steve Little, and has released two albums, Balance and My Little One, playing both covers and original compositions. Tickets are $25; call 505-983-6820 for reservations.
