Kind Of Blue And Fuego At Hobart’s

Don Adair

Two of Spokane’s top jazz bands swing into Hobart’s Jazz Lounge this weekend. Tonight, it’s Fuego, a horn-heavy outfit led by the husband/wife team of Steve Maurer and Terry Cooly. Fuego cranks out bright, danceable Latin sounds and since they haven’t checked in at Hobart’s for a while, there’s probably some pent-up dance energy floating around town.

Saturday, another horn-strong band moves in. Kind of Blue features an unusual front line of trumpet, sax and trombone, with all the harmonic possibilities that implies. The group is based on the rich sextet sound popularized in the late-‘50s and early-‘60s by such giants as Miles Davis and John Coltrane.

Cover is $4, $3 for students.

Music starts at 9 p.m. and I.D. is required.
