There may be no more dapper ensemble than Max Raabe and his Palast Orchester. The combo drinks deep from flapper-era jazz, Weimar Berlin and Irving Berlin alike for a sound both preserved in amber and entirely entrancing. The combo also has a cracking sense of humor — the banter is as witty as the arrangements. Royce Hall, UCLA. 8 p.m. Thu. $25 to $80. http://www.uclalive.org.

MUSIC Live up to the instrumental reputation of bassist-composer Charles Mingus? There's a tall order for any group. But Mingus Dynasty pulls it off with an adventurous spirit and devotion to Mingus' huge catalog (and the blessing of the legend's wife, Sue, who helped assemble the group). Royce Hall, UCLA. 8 p.m. Fri. $20 to $60. http://www.uclalive.org

Two of the most prestigious names in Southern California healthcare - Cedars-Sinai and UCLA - are getting shut out of a major insurance plan for being too expensive. In a bold cost-cutting move, Anthem Blue Cross has eliminated doctors affiliated with the hospitals from a health plan offered to about 60,000 employees and dependents at the cash-strapped city of Los Angeles. The city opted for Anthem's plan because it will save $7.6 million in annual premiums next year by excluding physicians from the two institutions known for tending to the Southland's rich and famous.

If there is a hint of mystery to UCLA's basketball opener against Drexel on Friday night, that's to be expected. "Openers are always scary," Coach Steve Alford said. "It's scary for both sides because you truly don't have an identity yet. " While the No. 22 Bruins have a new coach and a relatively young roster, Drexel arrives at Pauley Pavilion with an expected starting lineup that features a sixth-year senior, two normal seniors and two juniors. The Dragons went 13-18 last season and have not reached the NCAA Tournament in any of Coach Bruiser Flint's 12 years at the Philadelphia school.
