Friday, Aug. 23, 8 p.m.
With a sound rooted in tradition and an ear for Latin jazz, French cafes and gypsy camps, the Mischievous Swing quartet next swoops into the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame, 111 E. First St. The quartet led by popular Tulsa fiddler Shelby Eicher is made up of sons Isaac Eicher on mandolin and Nathan Eicher on upright bass as well as gypsy-jazz guitarist Ivan Peña. This swing team, which recently released a new album, shares with its audience the sound of sheer joy as it recalls the sound of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli’s Hot Club France of the 1930s. Show is at 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 23, and tickets are $10-$20. Can’t get enough of the Eicher family? Janet Rutland, who is married to Shelby Eicher, brings her hit cabaret show and band to the Jazz Hall of Fame at 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 25. Tickets are $15-$20.
