Bassist Michael Bowie is a chameleon-like musician, moving between projects every couple of years. He’s always exploring some new musical avenue, whether putting together a swinging program of standards culled from films of the ’40s and ’50s, or leading groups that create murky and moody hip-hop. A veteran of the road with icons like Isaac Hayes and Betty Carter, here he leads a tribute to Carter and Abbey Lincoln, two titanic singers he performed with over the years; the band features dynamic contemporary vocalists Shacara Rogers and Akua Allrich. Two separate sets at 8 and 10 p.m.
