Vocal Bebop 

Sheila Jordan

It's not just that one of the greatest jazz vocalists of the bebop era rarely comes around: Sheila Jordan never comes around! So it's a big event for fans and fellow singers that Jordan is singing at the Jazzschool Saturday in a program titled Jazz — A Life's Work. Her mix of beautiful music and bebop classics with often playful and always surprising vocal improvising is heavenly, even if the mainstream has never discovered her. She will be accompanied by pianist Peter Horvath, drummer Akira Tana, and bassist John Wiitala. 8 p.m., $20. Jazzschool.com
