BONE ISLAND BONES TO PLAY THE LITTLE ROOM JAZZ CLUB:  Wednesday, 22 March, 6:30PM:  “The Bone Island ‘Bones” are back. The group, three trombones and rhythm section, will give their 11th annual jazz concert at the Little Room Jazz Club, 816 Duval, on Wednesday, March 22, at 6:30 PM. The group consists of Joe Dallas, Jr., his father Joe Dallas, Sr., and Harry Schroeder on tenor trombones. The bass trombone slot will be filled by Georges Hemund, on baritone sax. The rhythm section is Tim McAlpine, guitar, Bubba Low Notes, bass, and Skipper Kripitz, drums.  “’The Bones Island ‘Bones’ has kind of a clunky rhythm to the name,” Schroeder says. “It certainly doesn’t swing. But ‘The Hip Bones’ seemed too strong for a group that plays, among other things, some old fashioned blues and an old tune called ‘New Orleans,’ and nobody wanted ‘The Funny ‘Bones.’ And this one at least fits.” All of the musicians are regular players with the Paradise Big Band. Joe Sr. is a regular visitor as trombone soloist. “He’s a great player, truly major league,” Schroeder says. “He has a completely relaxed time feel, and a great deal of eloquence on the horn.” Tickets are $15 at the door. Students free. The Little Room Jazz Club, 816 Duval
