Saxophonist Oliver Lake will return to this year's Jazz Poetry Concert on the North Side, this time with pianist Orrin Evans and his group, Tarbaby.

The concert-poetry event will take place at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 10 on Sampsonia Street, moving to the nearby New Hazlett Theater if it rains.

The annual event, which has featured the forward-looking Lake since its first year in 2006, is a celebration event of the work of City of Asylum/Pittsburgh, the group that gives sanctuary for persecuted writers from around the world.

The concert is free. Details: 412-321-2190.
