Saxophonist/composer Candace DeBartolo‘s previous (and too seldom heard) area performances have found her making estimable contributions to her Too Much Sax ensemble, which in addition to the leader’s consistently swinging contributions is also graced with the top-notch talents of other area sax slingers like Buck Hill. Tonight, DeBartolo performs with vocalist Sharon Clark, who, like the saxophonist, has delighted area audiences with her lyricism and warmth. At 8 & 10 p.m. at Blues Alley, Rear 1073 Wisconsin Ave. NW. $7-13. (202) 337-4141.(Reuben Jackson)
