Good Vibrations

Ever been in a situation you’ve been in countless times before, but for some reason this time it just feels different? Like the stars are aligned so that the same old scene seems better than it ever has? This, my friends, is what we call a vibe.

When the Robert Goodman Band takes its avant-jazz to the stage at a local hotspot, the vibe is right. Sure, you’ve seen a thousand different jazz groups at a thousand different bars, but this five-piece progressive combo, led by a local high school history teacher, controls the moment. They could teach us all a thing or two about improvisation and composition. History repeats itself each Wednesday evening from 8 to10 p.m. when the Robert Goodman Band provides the vibe at The Lounge (517 Clematis St., West Palm Beach). Admission is free. Call 561-655-9747, or visit www.robertgoodmanband.com.
