BRIC JazzFest


JAZZ Brooklyn is in the house with the return of the three-night BRIC JazzFest. Kicking off in high style with two vocal titans, Cecile McLorin Salvant and Kurt Elling, the festival proceeds with an eye on the contempora­ry scene, as Madison McFerrin, Adi Myerson, Thana Alexa, Adam O’Farrill, and others take the stage. Outlier favorites, including Hailu Mergia and Fred Wesley & the New JBs, are also on hand, and the Sun Ra Arkestra—led by the nonagenari­an saxophonis­t Marshall Allen—represent more traditiona­l fare.—Steve Futterman (Oct. 21-23.)
