When I saw Woody Pines at Abilene during last year's Jazz Fest, I remember remarking to myself or to the like-minded yahoos I was hanging out with that in spite of all the references to ragtime and old time boogie, the Pines' drumless outfit — save for random visits to beat on the lone floor tom parked up front — reminded me of The Johnny Burnette Trio. If that doesn't help, let's just call it hot music; jumpin' old-time jazz with maximum stomp and shake appeal.

Woody Pines plays Wednesday, January 14, at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 8:30 p.m. $10.;
