The Jazz & Heritage Foundation keeps the music going for a third straight weekend with this free concert celebrating one of the city's great musicians. Saxophonist Alvin "Red" Tyler was an instrumental part of the New Orleans sound in bands put together by Dave Bartholomew to back artists like Fats Domino. He appeared on signature New Orleans recordings through the 1950s and ’60s. (He died in 1998.) This showcase includes Germaine Bazzle, Johnny Vidacovich, Steve Masakowski, June Gardner and many others. Free tickets are first come/first serve at the CAC box office. The show is at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 9. It is part of the Jazz & Heritage Foundation's "Jazz Journey" concert series.
