Big names are doing extra-special things at the little room that is the Dakota Jazz Club in Minneapolis. This spring, jazz piano giant Chick Corea will bring banjo god Bela Fleck to jam with him at the Dakota. Last month, Rock Hall of Famer Prince auditioned a new drummer there one night and debuted his new all-female backup band on another night. On Friday at the sold-out, 300-seat venue, Americana queen Lucinda Williams kicked off an unprecedented five-concert run. After playing three nights solo there in 2011, she upped the ante by offering an extended engagement, accompanied by guitarist Doug Pettibone. Check out Star Tribune critic Jon Bream's review and Tom Wallace's photo gallery of the concert at www.startribune.com.
