A third-floor walk-up in a commercial building, the NTU (pronounced "into") Performing Arts Gallery mixes art and music. The high-ceilinged loft space features original works by artists such as Calvin Jones, whose oil murals are prominently displayed. On Wednesday evenings starting at 5 p.m., the gallery jumps with hot jazz. A house ensemble of drums, bass, piano, saxophone and trumpet takes center stage--there's room for an audience of about 150. Sometimes audience members can buy a complete dinner for $5 to go along with the Wednesday evening performance.
