Going North

October 12, 2000

* Jazz--Tenor saxophone great Charles Lloyd and his quartet will kick off the Lobero Jazz Series in Santa Barbara on Friday at 8 p.m. Lloyd's career passed through decades of wave-like appearances and disappearances after his major jazz hit in the mid-'60s, "Forest Flower." Times jazz critic Don Heckman recently said of Lloyd: "Despite the occasional absences, his live performances over the past year or so, especially when working with guitarist John Abercrombie and drummer Billy Higgins, have been extraordinary." The series will be held at Lobero Theatre, 33 E. Canon Perdido St. The rest of the schedule: Nov. 13, Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock; Feb. 15, Billy Taylor Trio; April 13, Shirley Horn. Series tickets, $125 and $96. Call for single ticket availability. 963-0761.

* Theater--Santa Barbara City College Theatre Group will open Moises Kaufman's new play, "Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde," Friday at Garvin Theatre.

Show times: Thursday-Saturday, 8 p.m.; Sunday, 2 p.m. Through Oct. 28. The theater is on the college's West Campus, 800 block of Cliff Drive. $14-$16 general; discounts for seniors, students and groups. 965-5935.
