If you’re a fan of jazz trombone, the Artists’ Quarter is the place to be when Brad Bellows gathers his cool combo Locally Damaging Winds for its first formal gig since 2004. The front line has four trombones — Dave Graf, Pete Enblom, Bellows on valve trombone and Buddy Rich Big Band alum Wade Clark on bass trombone. They can bring the brass power, but this Twin Cities ensemble is capable of plenty of subtlety, too. The rhythm section is new, yet very worthy: pianist Bryan Nichols, bassist Tom Pieper and drummer Mac Santiago. (9 p.m. Fri.-Sat., AQ, $15.) Surowicz

 

The longtime “Tonight Show” trumpet dynamo-turned-Minnesota Orchestra pops conductor brings his Doc Severinsen Big Band to the Twin Cities to tune up for a tour, with saxophone star Ernie Watts once again as featured soloist. Watts has played with countless big names, including Thelonious Monk, the Rolling Stones and Aretha Franklin. Watts also has vast big band experience, so he’s just what the Doc ordered. (7 & 9 p.m. Mon., Dakota Jazz Club, $30-$60.) Surowicz

 

Now a Blue Note recording artist, saxophonist/composer Ravi Coltrane is touring behind his recent album “Spirit Fiction,” produced by old pal Joe Lovano. In addition to Coltrane originals and songs composed collaboratively with his great touring band, the disc features covers of Ornette Coleman and Paul Motian. (7 & 9 p.m. Thu., Dakota Jazz Club, $25-$35.) Surowicz
