The Grammy winning alto saxophonist Kenny Garrett has a soulful, penetrating sound that can be both introspective and cage-rattling. He played for five years in Miles Davis’ band in the 1980s, and ever since he has been considered one of straight-ahead jazz’s top bandleaders. Here he appears with his regular combo, a band built of propulsive energy and binding conviction. Two separate sets at 8 and 10 p.m.
