Jazz-blues duo takes stage Oct. 25

Jim Ouska and Jane Aleckson, blues/jazz duo from Minneapolis, will perform on Saturday, October 25 at 7:30 p.m. General admission night of concert is $12. Advance sale tickets are $10.

Their concert is part of the fall music series at the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center. A sampling of critics' comments follows:

"Pocket Full of Tunes without years spent honing their craft... as impressive as their rhythms are their vocals, which blend as easily as their instrumentation. Aleckson displays a harmonic sophistication found only in the most accomplished jazz singers. The 12 cuts exhibit Ouska's and Aleckson's extraordinary range."

-Bill Stieger, Villager, St. Paul

"A smooth jazz infused trip around the musical horn. So original and rich."

-Jan Lee, Artistic Director, Stage North, Washburn, WI
