Glenn Tucker 
Kerrytown Concert Hall / December 15 
Glenn Tucker was playing piano in jazz clubs long before he could legally buy a drink in any of them. He’s been soloing, sitting in with, and subbing for local—and national—jazz masters since the age of fifteen. Now in his twenties, he’s already a seasoned player, arranger and composer, while at the same time still a bright young talent, searching for his mature voice. Although he has extensive experience as a sideman, he’s also long been leading groups. The concert will feature Tucker’s arrangements of a variety of seasonal music, including Olivier Messiaen's La Nativité du Seigneur, originally written for pipe organ, here arranged for jazz quintet. Joining Tucker will be area jazz stalwarts, Paul Finkbeiner and Andrew Bishop, and talented newcomers, Jordan Schug and Jesse Kramer. $5-$25. 8pm. 415 N. 4th Ave. 734-769-2999. www.kerrytownconcerthouse.com —SS
