A giant show, even for the well-stocked small stage at The Dakota! Pianist Abdullah Ibrahim—dubbed the “African Mozart” by Nelson Mandela(!!)—commemorates the music of his groundbreaking jazz septet, the Jazz Epistles, one of South Africa’s greatest bebop band of all time at a show on Monday. He’ll be joined by his Ekaya ensemble, an impressive lineup of reed players, for what’s truly going to be a once-in-a-lifetime show for music fans of any genre. Monday, 7 PM. $45-60.Ashlynn McKinney
