An unforgettable, outside the box concert of funky Afro-Caribbean tinged jazz “standards” with more unusual turns and surprises than a roller coaster, as we deconstruct the standard and reconstruct the familiar.

This world-class team of supreme vocalists are among the most adventurous anywhere.

Featuring The John Santos Sextet: Melecio Magdaluyo, Dr. John Calloway, Saul Sierra Marco Diaz, David Flores. With special guests: Faye Carol, Kenny Washington, Kellye Gray and Destani Wolf.

On Sunday, March 2, 2014, at 4 p.m., at the gorgeous new SFJAZZ Center at 201 Franklin at Fell St., San Francisco. 866-920-5299.

Pretty in Ink: North American Women Cartoonists 1896-2013

While the general public is all too familiar with superheroes such as Superman, Spiderman, Batman and others, lesser known is how many women drew comics in the early 20th century. While many of these talented women, like Nell Brinkley, were the superstars of their day, they’ve fallen into relative obscurity.

Through photos, letters, original artwork, toys, comic books and other ephemera, this exhibition showcases women cartoonists from the late 19th century to the present, including the first prewoman comic strip artist, Rose O’Neill, and her comic The Old Subscriber Calls, in Truth Magazine in 1896.

At the San Francisco Main Library, Fourth Floor, 100 Larkin Street, on March 8 – June 5, 2014.
