Curtis Brothers Quartet CD Release Party at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Dec. 9

Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art

For their new album, Completion of Proof, Artists Collective alums the Curtis Brothers (Luques and Zaccai, pictured) put together a musical dream-team — drummer Ralph Peterson, Jr., trumpeter Brian Lynch, and saxophonists Jimmy Greene and "Big Chief" Donald Harrison, who gave the Brothers their first touring band experience — and dove into some folkloric, Pan-African flavorings, from salsa and jazz to classical and funk. Catch their CD-release party at the Wadsworth as part of the 2011 Pork Pie Hat Jazz Series.


Curtis Brothers Quartet CD Release Party, Dec. 9, 8 p.m., $10-$15, Wadsworth Atheneum, 600 Main St., Hartford, (860) 278-2670,
