Two of a Kind 

8 p.m. Thursday, June 23, $10. Nighttown, 12387 Cedar Rd., Cleveland Heights, 216-795-0550.

For a freewheeling musical style, jazz begets the world's driest writing style when it comes to critics covering the genre. It's commonplace -- nay, expected -- to chat up young lions like Two of a Kind trumpeters Donald Malloy (left) and Curtis Taylor by spelling out, at length, whom they studied with, where they ate, and who was there. You'll pardon us if we skip that and just say that the homegrown ensemble sounds good to us.
