Kenny Barron, Dave Holland play jazz classics

Jazz Bakery plays host: Kenny Barron & Dave Holland on Sun. at Nate Holden; Ron Carter trio on Sat. at Zipper

In a year marked by inspired duet releases, this combination of pianist Kenny Barron and bassist Dave Holland was among the most rewarding. The duo's aptly named new album, "The Art of Conversation," could just as easily been named in tribute to listening as the two veteran talents combine on classics from the jazz songbook for a lush, intricate listen. The concert marks the second of two weekend concerts hosted by Jazz Bakery, with the first, featuring a trio led by bassist Ron Carter at Zipper Concert Hall on Saturday, just as worthy of a listen. The Nate Holden Performing Arts Center, 4718 W. Washington Blvd., Los Angeles. $40, Sun., 8 p.m. http://www.jazzbakery.org
