Rob Scheps and Eliot Zigmund, with the Mark Lowrey Quintet, at the Broadway Jazz Club



Big and burly, in presence and sound, saxophonist Rob Scheps visits Kansas City a couple of times a year. On each trip, he brings a New York musician whom Kansas Citians have little chance otherwise to enjoy. Joining Scheps this time: Eliot Zigmund, who, for more than 50 years, has drummed with such jazz stars as Bill Evans, Stan Getz and Jim Hall. But Scheps' music is reason enough to listen: In addition to playing tenor sax, he's lyrical on flute, and his solos are always surprising in their imagination. Scheps and Zigmund join Mark Lowrey's quintet Friday at the Broadway Jazz Club. Sunday afternoon, they give both a concert and a clinic with pianist Roger Wilder and bassist Bob Bowman at Take Five Coffee + Bar.
