Will Calhoun — most recognized as the drummer for the rock band Living Colour — has earned repeated praise for his fearless explorations of jazz, hip-hop, and world music. All About Jazz called the Grammy Award winner's solo album Native Lands "proof that living in a diversity of musical worlds can create its own focus." Calhoun will perform with a jazz ensemble of special guests, and will also participate in a conversation about percussion in the natural world. Saturday, Oct. 23, at National Geographic Live, 1600 M St. NW. Tickets are $20 for the general public, $18 for National Geographic members. Call 202-857-7700 or visit
