Piano Jazz: Rachel Z — 8pm at Pearl's

“Rachel Z’s weird persona as a sex kitten/fusion keyboard whiz has sometimes overshadowed her brilliance on the acoustic piano, but that’s fully corrected on her new album Dept. of Good and Evil. Inspired improvisations and solid note choices fire the album, such as the flurries in “King of Pain,” the chordal melody of “E.S.P.” and the delicate touches of “Lakme.” Dept. is certainly accessible, from Z’s generous piano lines to the buoyant drumming of Bobbie Rae.” —Philadelphia Weekly
