So, can you dig jazz? Bebop? The kind of music made famous by saxophone monsters like Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Stan Getz, Lester Young and Ben Webster? If you don’t really know the music of these legends, just come on out to Ashley Pond at 7 tonight and listen to a man critics call the “Prince of Bebop,” Greg Abate.

Bebop became famous in the ‘40s into the ‘50s, coming from the scat singing of folks like Dizzy Gillespie.
