Critics are all drooly over Happy Apple. If you look at the jazz trio-slash-mini supergroup's online reviews, there will only be a handful or so (as opposed to, say, 400+ for Coldplay's latest), but each one will be completely choked with wonder and adoration. Thing is, Happy Apple is so much more than a critics' darling. They could and seriously should bust the confines of more traditional jazz venues and play First Ave. In my imaginary musical dream world they would open for Radiohead. Listening will make you want to dance like the Peanuts crew does. Yes, listening to them will make you want to dance. You have three chances this month to do so. Make haste!
Fridays, Saturdays, 9 p.m.; Sun., Dec. 21, 8 p.m. Starts: Dec. 19. Continues through Dec. 20, 2008
