Jazz Festival HOW DO YOU TAKE YOUR JAZZ? Jazz comes in assorted varieties, much like potato chips, and the Angel City Jazz Festival serves up a surfeit of flavors. The spread includes Wadada Leo Smith's visionary compositions at the Ford Amphitheatre; avant-garde innovator Henry Grimes (pictured) at REDCAT; the postmodern instrumentals of Kneebody at the Ford; nontraditional experimenter John Abercrombie at the Musicians Institute; and the improvised inspirations of guitarist Nels Cline, drummer Alex Cline, and pianist Myra Melford, collaborating with chefs Paul Canales and Kelsey Bergstrom of Oliveto Restaurant, for a "Cookin' It Up" tasting at Japanese maid cafe Royal/T. Movies, too: Dirty Baby , at LACMA's Bing Theater, documents L.A. artist Ed Ruscha's "censor strip" paintings, and The Reach of Resonance , at Barnsdall Gallery Theatre, profiles four musicians on global missions. Various venues around Los Angeles. Complete schedule at angelcityjazz.com; festival pass $75. (323) 573-2110.
Sat., Oct. 2; Sun., Oct. 3; Mon., Oct. 4, 2010
