TED LUDWIG TRIO5 p.m., Capital Bar and Grill. Free.Ted Ludwig
is no stranger to people who frequent our town's more upscale drinking and dining establishments. He's provided music for the Capital Bar & Grill and Afterthought for several years and, in the process, established himself as nothing short of a Little Rock institution. But just why should you swing by the Capital Bar to hear Ludwig's trio this week? Because Ludwig and co. began recording a live album at the Capital Bar yesterday, and they'll wrap it up today. Even more of a draw? Saxophonist Tony Dagradi from the New Orleans-based modern jazz quintet, Astral Project
, is sitting in. This is your chance to get a clap — or even a dignified “woot woot” — captured in recording forever. Definitely recommended.
