The winter season often makes everything better for Floridians who've had it with the nine months of summer. Welcome the cool weather with a little class and a little jazz at the Bass Museum with the Billy Sun Ray Trio. Pianist Billy Ray, drummer Howard Moss, and bassist Jim Kessler promise an old-school program of Jazz Age hits. One of the exhibits that will flank the trio is Paris Moderne: Art Deco Works from the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. Mingle with Ellington, Braque, Bessie Smith, Picasso, and Modigliani.
performs at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, November 18, at the Bass Museum of Art, 2121 Park Ave, Miami Beach. Tickets range from $5 to $15. Call 305-673-7530.
