Today marks the start of Jazz Haven’s “Jazz Week 2014”—which is a modest way of putting it, seeing as it lasts longer than a week. Through next Sunday, August 24, 27 performances entertain patrons at 17 venues around town, from Cafe Nine to the Owl Shop to Geronimo, along with two big Saturday shows outside on the green. The first of those happens this evening, headlined by the Nat Reeves Quartet at 8 p.m., with the High School in the Community Jazz Band opening at 4:30 and two more acts between. Most Jazz Week shows are cover charge-free; check the schedule for specifics.
