Junius Courtney Big Band 

When: Sun., March 30, 3-6 p.m. 2008
Price: $10

Rather than say goodbye when their beloved trumpeter and bandleader Junius Courtney died at the age of 85, the twenty members of his EastBay band have kept his spirit alive through a busy schedule of dances and benefits. Now led by his drummer son Nat Courtney, and featuring vocalist Denise Perrier, the Junius Courtney Big Band plays regularly around the EastBay, directed by trumpeter George Spencer. The band will swing hard through Basie, Ellington, more modern Thad Jones charts, and band originals in a Sunday afternoon gig at intimate Anna's Jazz Island (2120 Allston Wy., Berkeley), where its previous visit sold out. 3 p.m., $15. AnnasJazzIsland.com or 510-841-JAZZ.
