Sound Menu July 04 2001 Sun

ATLANTA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA — Celebrating the addition of walking paths, water fountains and 160 new trees to Oak Hill in Piedmont Park, Jere Flint, Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra's music director, leads the ASO in a free concert. Selections include overtures by Wagner, Mozart, Supp and Berlioz as well as "Melodius Tchaikovsky," selections from Sleeping Beauty, The Nutcracker, and 1812 Overture. Piedmont Park (Keel)

BLAKE GUTHRIE — Opening for folk-rocker Mimi Holland is local strummer Blake Guthrie, whose songwriting lately has taken a startling turn away from the novelty numbers on which his initial reputation was made. Guthrie's new material is deeper and more introspective, yet still just as clever and crafted with his keen eye for ironic detail. Eddie's Attic (Nicoll)

J.A.Z. BRUNCH — Located in the former Baker's Cafe on Euclid Avenue is a superb new restaurant called Bang, where from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sundays, they feature live jazz by amazingly nimble-fingered keyboardist James Arthur Zachary (J.A.Z.), who performed last week at the John Lee Hooker tribute with members of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. The food is terrific, the prices reasonable and the atmosphere divine. Bang (Nicoll)

NELSON RANGELL — Taboo continues their policy for presenting the best in so-called "crossover jazz," with one of the genre's more under-appreciated musicians. As adept on flute and piccolo as alto sax (his primary instrument), Rangell often plays it safe on album, but can open up in concert. Smooth, but not snoozy, fans of the similarly inclined Boney James, Dave Koz and David Sanborn will be blown away by Rangell's diversity and undeniable talent. Taboo (Horowitz)
