The Crocker Art Museum’s Thursday concert series heads outdoors to the shady comfort of the museum’s courtyard at 216 O St. in Sacramento for a full season of jazz this summer. From Cajun and Brazilian to smooth tunes, the concerts will offer up the best of the museum’s former Third Thursday Jazz series and new Playlist music series.

Concerts will start at 6 p.m. and tickets are $6 for museum members and $12 for nonmembers. Tickets are available for purchase online at http://crockerartmuseum.org, at the museum admission desk or by calling (916) 808-1182.

Alfresco dining and beverage specials will be available throughout the evening, and museum spotlight talks will be offered during intermission.

On June 16, Sandy Cressman and Homenagem Brasileira will perform original arrangements of music by the composers of Brazilian jazz such as Dori Caymmi, Milton Nascimento, Joao Donato and Jobim.

Ecuadorian-born guitarist Iván Nájera will present an explosive show encompassing a multitude of Spanish, Latin, and jazz flavored rhythms on July 21.

On Aug. 18, jazz keyboard master Roger Smith will perform with special guests. A producer and composer, Smith is one of the most prolific artists in contemporary jazz, and he has played with legends such as Jeff Beck, Gladys Knight, Willie Nelson and Leon Russell.

On Sept. 15, Little Charlie Caravan will close out the outdoor jazz series in a swinging concert of gypsy jazz. Charlie Baty, otherwise known as “Little Charlie,” has a unique guitar voice influenced by the music of Django Reinhardt, blues and swing. Other members of the band include Jason Vanderford, Bob Armstrong and Keith Cary.
