One of S&F’s favorite local musicians, jazz virtuoso Olivia Revueltas, will play a rare SA gig at the Instituto Cultural de Mexico (600 Hemisfair Park) on Saturday, September 27, at 7 p.m.

Inspired most deeply by Thelonius Monk, John Coltrane, and Charles Mingus, the 57-year-old Mexico City native rebelled against her strict conservatory training and her mother’s disapproval of jazz to become one of Mexico’s finest bop-influenced pianists. Since moving to SA in 1988, she’s only extended her reputation as one of the form’s most impassioned stylists. She’ll be backed at the Instituto by bassist Andrew Peck and drummer Darren Kuper.

While we’re on the subject of female San Anto musicians who dare to rebel, we should mention that Girl in a Coma will also play one of their infrequent local shows, on Friday, September 26, at Jack’s Patio Bar & Grill (2950 Thousand Oaks). After the gig, they’ll head out on a 14-date tour with Tegan & Sara, and try to squeeze in some more recording sessions for their in-progress sophomore album at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo. Doors open for the Jack’s show at 8 p.m.
