Representing the praiseworthy LAJC tonight are two superbly progressive musicians performing works commissioned by the Los Angeles Jazz Society and originally presented at Angel City Jazz Festivals in recent years. L.A.-based pianist-composer Richard Sears’ deeply textured, free-swinging Altadena suite was inspired by iconic jazz drummer Albert “Tootie” Heath, who also was involved in the recording of Sears’ recent album of the same title, out on the essential Ropeadope label. Heath joins Sears’ quartet for tonight’s set, and sparks shall fly. A CalArts grad, pianist-composer-teacher Cathlene Pineda performs her LAJS-commissioned work Passing: A California Suite, inspired by the writings of L.A.’s first poet laureate Eloise Klein Healy; she’ll be joined by drummer Tina Raymond, trumpeter Kris Tiner and bassist David Tranchina.
