In Del­ray, the elas­tic­ity of jazz and biki­nis

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - South Broward - - THE GO GUIDE - Ben Crandell

This feels like a Del­ray Beach week­end, for a con­flu­ence of rea­sons, hav­ing nearly noth­ing to do with biki­nis in Wor­thing Park.

First, there is ex­tra­or­di­nary mu­sic of­fered Fri­day night at the Arts Garage by New Or­leans trum­peter Chris­tian Scott aTunde Adjuah, who has drawn ef­fu­sive praise from all the right out­lets for his Septem­ber re­lease, “Stretch Mu­sic” (Ro­pead­ope Records), an ex­plo­ration of the elas­tic­ity of the mu­sic known as “jazz.” The Wall Street Jour­nal called the al­bum “a bold leap” ahead in his ex­per­i­men­ta­tion with “a sleekly orig­i­nal blend of jazz so­phis­ti­ca­tion, hiphop at­ti­tude and the edgi­ness of al­ter­na­tive rock.”

Adjuah per­forms at the Arts Garage at 8 p.m. Fri­day, with tick­ets start­ing at $25 (Arts­Garage.org). If you can’t make it, catch him on Satur­day on the Rhythm

Reach­ing its cli­max this week­end, Del­ray Beach Fash­ion Week has filled down­town with all man­ner of sar­to­rial fin­ery. Fri­day’s must-see event is some­thing else: The an­nual Vince Can­ning Stiletto Race is high­lighted by the 75-me­ter dash by men un­likely to be dash­ing in their high heels, all for a good cause (Achieve­ment Cen­ters for Chil­dren & Fam­i­lies). Other events tak­ing place 6-9 p.m. Fri­day on At­lantic Av­enue at South­east Fourth Av­enue in­clude a women’s 75-me­ter dash, a con­test of most cre­ative shoes, and a run for run­away brides.
