"Jazz Mafia Tuesdays" at 12 Galaxies

Since February, 12 Galaxies has played host to this weekly gathering of seasoned, eclectic, local jazz musicians. The group — from four to 20 members strong, depending on the night and which "Jazz Mafia" incarnation is playing — isn't interested in that Starbucks-approved brand of auditory wallpaper, working instead with a fusion of styles, including hip hop and funk. A typical night features 2 1/2 hours of music, usually extended compositions by founder Adam Theis. Both rigorous and free-form, the tunes appeal to jazz snobs and novices alike.
