HERBIE HANCOCK, MICHAEL BRECKER, ROY HARGROVE -- It's a 75th birthday celebration of Miles and Coltrane, both born in 1926. These men, whose vastly disparate approaches intersected in Davis' 1955-61 ensembles, were definitive modern-jazz artists, committed and fearlessly innovative. Hancock, Brecker and Hargrove will no doubt embrace that aesthetic in tribute. Hancock is an alumnus (1965-68) of the classic Davis quintet, and saxman Brecker and trumpeter Hargrove are worthy inheritors. Glenn Auditorium/Emory (Powell)

Halloween events
Several of Atlanta's playhouses are becoming spook houses this week. Likened to "Dracula's bachelor party," THE SPOOKY HORROR PUPPET SHOW is the Center for Puppetry Arts' ghoulishly comic take on the holiday, featuring individual sketches by such perennial puppeteers as Jon Ludwig, Bobby Box, Lorna Howley and Chris Brown, and an ensemble that includes Julie Dansby, Reay Kaplan and Lucky Yates. Special events include a beer-tasting Thursday and a "Dress to Thrill" costume party Saturday. The show runs through OCT. 28. $16 (wear a costume for a 25-percent discount). Thurs.-Sat. 8 p.m.; Sun. 5 p.m. Center for Puppetry Arts, 1404 Spring St. 404-873-3391.

Fans of Nicole Kidman's The Others should check out the Shakespeare Tavern's haunted-house production of Henry James' THE TURN OF THE SCREW -- which Others resembles more than a little. Agnes Harty stars as a beleaguered governess protecting two children from supernatural forces, with Maurice Ralston playing all the other roles. Live music from Peter Hauenstein provides the gothic vibe. The show runs through OCT. 28. $10-$26. Thurs. 7:30 p.m.; Fri.-Sat. 7:30 and 11 p.m.; Sun. 6:30 p.m. New American Shakespeare Tavern, 499 Peachtree St., 404-874-5299.
