sidemen of the '50s and '60s, Frank's most recent album, Once is Not Enough (Labeth, 2009), has Wess fronting an all-star nonet for the first time. “Frank is playing as well if not better than ever. He's hands down one of the greatest living tenor players, and of course peerless on flute," jazz historian Dan Morgenstern told this column, adding: “I hope he's writing that book—what stories that man has to tell." Photos and memorabilia document Wess's career on the church Living Room wall.

$20 is the suggested advance donation, or $25 at the door, 619 Lexington Ave. at 54th St. “E" train to 6th Ave. or No. 6 to 51st St..
