Briefs: Organ, sax stars to play Carnegie concert
Hurricane season continues in Pittsburgh.
Hammond B3 organ star Gene Ludwig and tenor saxophonist Lou Stellute will highlight a quartet at “Last Set at the Hurricane” Saturday in Carnegie.
The session is being offered to pay tribute to the Hurricane Lounge, a fabled Hill District bar that was the site of performances by some of jazz’s most famous stars in the late ’40s and ’50s.
That homage joins a seven-concert tribute being offered at the Hill House community center in the Hill. Those concerts began in September, and the next one is Nov. 23.
The Carnegie concert also will feature drummer Tom Wendt and guitarist Ron Wilson .
Music begins 7 p.m. at the Andrew Carnegie Music Hall, 300 Beechwood Ave., Carnegie. Admission is $20.
Details: Online .
