There are just a couple of weekends left in the New Mexico Jazz Festival, with concerts today and tomorrow in Santa Fe and Sunday in Albuquerque.

Tonight, Buika performs at the Lensic. Tomorrow, it's Pharaoh Sanders at the same venue with a free Q&A and an evening concert. Ravi Coltrane rounds out the weekend at ABQ's Outpost Performance Space on Sunday.

Rebecca Moss, who reported that story for the New Mexican, helped me break down the numbers.
