Hot jazz

Enjoy a free jazz performance by the Charles Sibirsky Trio, while checking out the flavors of Park Slope’s new Aji Bar and Lounge, on Thursday.

Named for the spicy Peruvian chile, the spot, which opened in May, serves up “street food” you might find on a stroll in Lima — with a sophisticated flair — while the trio will “be playing jazz standards as well as the music of Charlie Parker, Thelonius Monk, Lennie Tristano and originals,” Sibirsky told GO Brooklyn.

As founder and director of Slope Music, Sibirsky — also a jazz pianist — is well known to his neighbors. Hopefully, Aji chef Piero Cespedes’s name will also be on the tips of neighbors’ tongues after they get their forks into his new fall menu — which will include a few entrees, too, according to owner Carlos Elias.

The Charles Sibirsky Trio will perform from 7:30 pm to 11:30 pm on Aug. 28 at Aji Bar and Lounge (287 Ninth St., between Fourth and Fifth avenues, in Park Slope). Free. For information, call (718) 832-0085 or visit
