CRITIC'S CHOICE

Roy Hargrove, Wednesday, February 16, through Friday, February 18, at the St. Petersburg Jazz Club and Restaurant, 4851 East Virginia Avenue, is among the new and improved crop of even younger "young lions" aiming to fulfill the promises made by their most recent predecessors. At 23, this retro-bop trumpeter is already on solid jazz footing; tenor superman Sonny Rollins has actually written a song about him, entitled "Young Roy." Hargrove's quintet, including tenor saxophonist Ron Blake, drummer Greg Hutchinson, bassist Rodney Whitaker and pianist Peter Martin, sports a fat, detailed sound, and its leader regularly proves willing to step into the beyond even while re-creating a classic tune. So scrape together what for the Saint Petersburg is the bargain cover charge of $15: Hargrove is worth the investment.
