Local jazz mainstays unite to pay tribute to one of the art form's underappreciated heroes, the late pianist Jaki Byard, whose panoramic performances connected the dots between expressionistic free jazz and earthy swing. The band includes flutist Jamie Baum, reedist Adam Kolker, guitarist Jerome Harris, bassist Ugonna Okegwo and drummer George Schuller; here they celebrate a charming new CD, Inch by Inch.
