Helio Alves will make a trip to the market, to play jazz, tonight.

Whole notes

It may be a stretch of the imagination to envision a grocery store as a hip jazz venue, but that’s precisely what Whole Foods Market in West Orange aims to do with its series of Tuesday evening performances.

This week, Brazilian pianist Helio Alves takes the “stage” with drummer Adriano Santos. The two will play Brazilian standards and original compositions. Alves’ excellent new CD, “Musica,” was released last year on the South Orange-based Jazz Legacy Productions label.

The store is at 235 Prospect Ave., and Alves and Santos will play tonight from 6 to 8. Call (973) 669-3196 or visit bossanovamusicproductions.com.
