Rachel Z

9 p.m. Friday, March 18, $20. Nighttown, 12387 Cedar Rd., Cleveland Hts., 216-795-0550.


A jazz pianist with a pierced nose, Rachel Z has worked with Peter Gabriel, Wayne Shorter, and Stanley Clarke. Now she fronts a trio, making songs like Gabriel's "Red Rain," the Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses," and Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun" sound a lot different than they do when you hear them on the radio every day. Can't make the show? WCPN-FM 90.3 will broadcast it live.
