Jazz Beat: Jazz Winterlude, at Johnson County Community College 

Jazz Winterlude, a festival put on by Johnson County Community College, broadens its reach this year by adding world music. The lineup is full of traditional jazz and plenty of spicier sounds, too. You can choose from the Ron Gutierrez Quartet, KC Sound (with Hermon Mehari and Steve Lambert), Juha's World Beat, Chris Clarke Trio, Guitarras Ibericas (with Beau Bledsoe and Karim Memi), Gamelan Genta Kasturi, and so many more. The big draw, though, are the Grammy-winning headliners: Friday night in the Polsky Theatre, percussionist Terri Lyne Carrington celebrates the 50th anniversary of Money Jungle, the Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus and Max Roach album; Saturday night, trumpeter and Dizzy Gillespie disciple Arturo Sandoval takes over Yardley Hall.
