Three words: Some. Skunk. Funk. If you’re unfamiliar with trumpet and flugelhorn titan Randy Brecker, 70, do yourself a favor, jump on YouTube and get educated. View any vintage video of the Brecker Brothers unleashing their bullet train of a song, “Some Skunk Funk,” and you’ll be floored by the high-voltage creativity and nonstop virtuosity. Brecker will tap his musical firepower to lead the Gene Harris Festival SuperBand for two nights.
Gene Harris Jazz Festival is March 29-April 1. Brecker performances are at 8 p.m. Thursday, March 31, and Friday, April 1, Boise State Student Union Special Events Center. $15. 426-3099, geneharris.org.
