Fairfield University has got a couple of interesting shows happening at the Quick Center this week. First, on Friday, FU music program director Brian Torff leads a band of jazz professors (called the Jazz Professors) in a fresh interpretation of Duke Ellington's music. The show is named New Duke, and there will be two sets: one at 7 p.m. and one at 9 p.m. in the Wien Experimental Theatre. On Saturday, Chilean band Inti-Illimani are performing in the big room, a 45-year-old musical entity that blends more than 30 wind, string and percussion instruments and vocals. The group is known for resurrecting traditional Latin folk sounds in the 1970s while delivering messages of social change and revolution. They play at 8 p.m.
