The first of two Sundays to hold this annual multi-artist presentation should provide a telling snapshot of the local jazz scene’s diversity. Clarence Penn’s hard swinging quartet, Rob Brown’s investigatory foursome, Fay Victor’s improv-slanted vocals, James Carney’s inspired nu-bop, and the hard-hitting bari and ‘bone front line of Willie Martinez & La Familia should tickle the audience all afternoon. Look forward to a breeze wafting in from Buttermilk Channel.
