This Friday from 7 to 11 p.m., browse books, sip coffee, and digest while listening to Miami trio Jazzilla. The funk and abstraction of Bitches Brew, the rim shots of Philly Joe Jones, and the intricate riffs of Wes Montgomery are all influences Jazzilla hopes youll hear. They play everything from jazz fusion to straight-ahead standards, with no commercial aspirations, so expect to hear freedom in their music. As always at Books & Books, the show is free.
