The local jazz cognoscenti will likely turn out in force for next week’s Jeremy Walker Benefit Bash. Over the past decade Walker has worn lots of hats: saxophonist, pianist, composer, bandleader, club owner and booker, founder of the nonprofit Jazz Is NOW! — all that and more while battling debilitating Lyme disease. The lineup for this fund­raiser is impressive, too: Grammy-nominated saxophonist Ted Nash; New York City-based pianist and composer extraordinaire David Berkman; bass master Anthony Cox and his band, Happy Spirits; singers from the Minnesota Opera; Walker’s band Boot Camp, and writer/comedian Joseph Scrimshaw. Walker has big bills and no health insurance, but thankfully no shortage of friends. (7 p.m. Thu., Dakota Jazz Club, $50.) Surowicz
