Update: This event has been postponed due to illness.

Tenor saxophonist Denny Morouse blows into the UCO Jazz Lab, 100 E. Fifth in Edmond, for a concert at 8 p.m. Thursday. The man has been Stevie Wonder’s bandleader, the musical arranger for the Saturday Night Live band, and performed on the soundtracks to Animal House, Fame and Flashdance. In other words, it’s safe to say you’ve heard him. Tickets are $12. Call 359-7989 or visit vinerygroup.com.

Cut it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
I thought my ability to cut wrapping paper in a fairly straight line was brag-worthy. Nope! Not compared to “scissor artist” Karl Johnson, who can almost instantly turn anyone — live or photographic — into a paper silhouette suitable for framing. From noon to 6 p.m. Thursday, he returns to Full Circle Bookstore, 1900 Northwest Expressway. Admission is free, but reserve a five-minute appointment for a $25 custom silhouette. Call 842-2900 or visit fullcirclebooks.com.
