The apple that is year 22 of the Gene Harris Jazz Festival didn't fall far from year 21's tree—but that doesn't make it any less sweet. Kicking of the two-day festival at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 4, after a day of workshops will be a Headline Concert at the Morrison Center ($15) starring Latin Grammy-nominated Rafael Piccolotto de Lima, a famed Brazilian composer, arranger, conductor and producer. Prefacing his show will be an Upper Division Showcase Concert and a performance by the Boise State Jazz Orchestra, and the Gene Harris Festival Orchestra will join him on stage. The Friday, April 5, roster includes free workshops and performances in the Boise State University Student Union Building, followed by "club night" concerts from jazz bands across downtown Boise that will send the festival off in style.
