Anthony Brown Asian American Jazz Orchestra 

When: Sat., April 5, 3-4 p.m. 2008
Price: $5-$8

Billing itself as a place where people can walk in and see themselves represented, the OaklandMuseum (1000 Oak St., Oakland) is making a concerted effort to highlight cross-cultural exchanges and the protean quality of "tradition" in its new exhibitions. Ergo, Trading Traditions, an exhibit featuring photographs of African-American Buddhists, a Mr. and Miss Gay Pacific Alliance Pageant, and mass-produced porcelain plates that resemble ancient wares from the Ming Dynasty. One of the main highlights is a recording of the Anthony Brown Asian American Jazz Orchestra, a group that incorporates Asian instruments like the dizi(bamboo flute), sheng (mouth organ), and goshme(Persian reed instrument) into new arrangements of standards by Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, and Thelonius Monk. The group will perform on Saturday, April 5, from 3-4 p.m. $5-$8
