This surprise collaboration between two of the classiest guys around should make for an extraordinary night at the Dakota. It's only a slight exaggeration to say Sidran has done everything. He's a singer, plays keyboards and vibes, writes songs and books, hosts TV shows, produced the likes of Van Morrison and Diana Ross, played with the Stones, was a key member of the Steve Miller Band, and is equally prolific on the jazz side, favoring the type of cool swing associated with Mose Allison. Tenor saxophonist Irv Williams has been a fixture on the local jazz scene for more than six decades. Dubbed Mr. Smooth for his sublime tone and masterful subtlety, Williams has "retired" and issued his "final" album so many times it's impossible to keep track. This spring, at age 91, he put out another charmer, Duke's Mixture, featuring a handful of smart originals, covers of Irving Berlin, and his first recorded vocal on "Until the Real Thing Comes Along," which he also happened to sing in high school 75 years ago. "We'll be doing lots of cool jazz standards (that I probably will be singing for the first time)," Sidran said by email. "Hanging with Irv, who is such a gentleman and a suave entertainer, is always a jazz master class." Amen. $25. 7 p.m. 1010 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis; 612.332.1010. —Rick Mason
