POWER TRIO: Marquinn Mason (from left), Daniel Bailey, and Kenneth Murray

Happening on the second Friday of every month, the Castleberry Hill Art Stroll celebrates the downtown neighborhood's diverse array of galleries, ultimately converging on the Elliott Street Deli and Pub for some music and fellowship.

This Friday, January 11, saxophonist Marquinn Mason's post bop trio provides the jams. Mason has a nice thick tone reminiscent of Sonny Rolllins, while drummer and lap steel player Kenneth Murray, and bassist Daniel Bailey (Faun and a Pan Flute) function as an active, engaging rhythm section in the vein of Ed Blackwell and Charlie Haden. Mason and Murray have played together in larger groups such as Kebbi Williams' Wolfpack ATL, but this is a nice chance to see these musicians pared down to a trio, performing a completely improvised set.

Free. Fri., Jan. 11. 9 p.m. Elliott Street Pub, 51 Elliott Street SW, Atlanta. (404) 523-2174.
