This year’s Healdsburg Jazz Festival, taking place the first week of June, will feature two special events that honor jazz drummer Billy Hart
. Best known as a member of Herbie Hancock’s sextet, Hart continues as a bandleader and educator. This week, jazz fans get a chance to meet and learn from Hart in advance of the concerts. In two programs titled “The Many Facets of Billy Hart,” the drummer shares stories and techniques. Hart keeps the beat on Friday, April 22, at the Green Music Center (1801 East Cotati Ave., Rohnert Park; 6pm; free) and on Saturday, April 23, at Healdsburg Junior High School (315 Grant Ave., Healdsburg; 1pm; free).
