Jazz musician practical jokes: A strategically greased slide trombone. An upright bass strung with two D-strings. A metronome that cannot be turned off. A rubber mute replaced with a fresh flounder. Who knows what you'll get this April Fool's Day at the Saint Louis Stompers' free jazz concert at Trinity Presbyterian Church (6800 Washington Avenue, University City; 314-725-3840)? At 7 p.m. Saturday, April 1, take a break from terrorizing your friends to enjoy some of the finest jazz around (or, if your pals are hardcore metalheads, just bring 'em with you for the funniest April Fool's trick of all!). Free reception to follow.
