CL Critic Doug DeLoach Recommends: Two solo sets by Jeff Crompton and Viceroy Cyprian, respectively, comprise a special matinee program at the No Tomorrow performance space in Underground Atlanta. Saxophonist/composer Crompton leads and participates in a number of groups around Atlanta including the Edgewood Saxophone Trio, Standard Practice and the Sataraš Quartet. At No Tomorrow he will be performing original pieces and obscure classics from the jazz repertoire. For his set, Viceroy Cyprian (the nom du guerre of Atlanta multi-instrumentalist George Kotler-Wallace) will employ steel guitar, banjo and electronics to create hypnotic ambient soundscapes infused by Southern chill. — DD
