2wo 4our 1ne (Jazzy Jamz)

Most of this self-titled album is instrumental, with some distinct Latin overtones in the rhythms. There are also some lovely vocals from Michelle Hailey on a few tracks. It’s an accomplished album, overall, with elements of smooth jazz, R&B and soul blended seamlessly together. What really stands out, though, is the level of technical accomplishment — all the musicians here are solid, but saxophonist Ric Alexander is particularly impressive.

At Oracle Arena (7000 Coliseum Way, Oakland) on July 17 &18. 10 a.m., $7.25
