As proven by his excellent 2007 release Sunrise on Bourbon Street, trombonist Rick Trolsen is as fine a traditional-jazz player as can be found in New Orleans. His alter ego " the leader of the long-dormant group Neslort (get it?) " also has a few tricks up his sleeve. This gig revives an experimental project with mostly original alumni from its shifting membership, including Trolsen and Brent Rose leading on trombone and tenor saxophone respectively, Larry Sieberth on piano, Luther Kent Band guitarist Jay Griggs, and Tommy Sciple on bass. Trolsen has a stockpile of Neslort jazz-rock compositions on file that boast a grab bag of influences " from Frank Zappa to Charlie Parker to Bulgarian choral music " but since the assembled musicians are also known improvisers, the night will surely venture into uncharted sonic territory. Tickets $7. — Alison Fensterstock
