Jazz it up

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

The last few weeks have been pretty stressful. Christmas, the Mayan apocalypse and then New Year's Eve were all major events. (OK, so the apocalypse turned out to be not so major.) Now that it's 2013 and there aren't any major holidays or Armageddons in the horizon, you may want to sit down, listen to some good music and chill out with a cocktail. Grab your favorite hep cats and hit up these jazz nights:

On Thursday, Jan. 3, stop by Voz Alta (1754 National Ave. in Barrio Logan) for its weekly Latin Jazz Jam with Bill Caballero. The master trumpeter takes the stage at the art gallery with a few of his friends to play cool, Latin world music from 7 to 10 p.m. Get up and dance or just enjoy the grooves. Either way, the scene and the sounds will ease you into the weekend.

Gloria Estefan once said that "the rhythm is gonna get you," and it's entirely possible that the rhythm did indeed grab hold of you at Voz Alta. If you want to keep the Latin-jazz train a-rollin', head to 98 Bottles (2400 Kettner Blvd. in Little Italy) on Saturday, Jan. 5, for a concert by The Afrojazziacs. The darkly lit back room will be filled with the bandís contemporary Afro-Cuban sounds starting at 8 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance, $10 at the door. Come early and knock back few of the bar's awesome craft cocktails.

Saturday will also see a show at one of San Diego's favorite jazz spots. Tenor saxophonist Brian Levy will blow some tunes with piano dynamo Milan Zlatkovich, bassist Hamilton Price and drummer Duncan Moore at Dizzy's (4275 Mission Bay Drive in Pacific Beach). This is a great night for some cool, classic jazz and maybe a bit of improvised jamming. The cover is $15, or $10 of you're a student.
