Cincinnati’s Jazz scene really, really needs more shows by avant-gardists and improvisational experimentalists — their appearances here are all too rare. So it’s a big deal that the veteran William Hooker, a Free Jazz drummer and composer, who has worked with such illustrious figures as Billy Bang, David Murray, David S. Ware and Malachi Thompson, is bringing his trio to the Loft Society Saturday for a tribute concert to Sun Ra that also features the opening band Off Key. 


8 p.m. Saturday. $20 at the door. 119 Calhoun St., Clifton Heights, facebook.com/loftsociety.
