You may think you know the hardest-working man in showbiz, but you ain't seen nothing til you've checked out the Russell Sharf and Jazz Explosion. Comprised of Milton Villarubia on drums, Case Tanner (also of the Bus Tapes) on electric bass and Scharf on trumpet, the trio rocks Osaka this weekend with—yes—a jazz explosion. The first Saturday of every month at Osaka will feature the group playing everything from original songs, fun covers and jazz standards to Michael Jackson.
So, all in all, there are three things that you need to have a sweet evening in Santa Fe: sushi (get over that fish-in-the-desert fear), high-quality tunes and three cool guys to deliver said tunes. Done and done.
