The trumpeter JS Williams likes digging into a Lee Morgan vibe. That means finding time for some swinging hard-bop playing, and more than a few lines soused in the blues. But it also means being open, and in Williams’ playing you’ll hear a funk sensibility lifted from the 1970s and ’80s, plus the peppery flow of a few hip-hop emcees. Two separate sets at 7:30 and 9 p.m.
