It has nothing to do with a land over a rainbow, but The Trio of Oz finds something exotic and magical in the music of your life. This stellar jazz trio (members have played with everyone from Miles Davis to David Bowie) only occasionally dabbles in standards of the distant past – a Gershwin ballad or an old blues shuffle. Instead, you’re more likely to find pianist Rachel Z building a solo on the chorus of The Smiths’ “There Is a Light” or drummer Omar Hakim chattering behind the melody of “Angry Chair” by Alice in Chains. They’re not the only jazz group tackling contemporary rock and pop, but they do it with a clean elegance and a devilish sense of fun.

➞ The Trio of Oz (Feb. 9). Wilson Center for the Arts. Harris Theater. 19805 W. Capitol Dr., Brookfield, 262-781-9520, wilson-center.com.
