Live and Local

Almost “A” Quintet in Urbana


There’s a group in Champaign-Urbana called the Almost “A” Quintet, and I’ve never been able to get a straight answer about what their name means. But since they have backgrounds in jazz, classical and contemporary art music and play folk, gypsy, Latin, tango, klezmer and various other styles, I’m going with “Almost Anything.” The quintet has various gigs coming up, and they’ll play for us live on the Friday edition of “Live and Local.”
