Name nearly any trend in jazz over the last few decades—postmodernism, whimsy, a broadened definition of what constitutes the standard repertoire—and chances are good that trumpeter Jack Walrath was way ahead of the curve. A veteran of Mingus's blazing Changes combo, Walrath has been slow to get his due; pay tribute tonight as he steers a hot quintet.
