The benefit, Smooth Jazz 4 La Conchita, will take place on March 9 at the Arlington Theatre in nearby Santa Barbara. It's sponsored by Santa Barbara smooth jazz station Magic 97.5 and Cumulus Broadcasting.

Also on the bill will be saxophonist Michael Lington, vocalist Bobby Caldwell, trumpeter Greg Adams and the group 3rd Force.

Tickets go on sale Feb. 25 at noon. For more information, call (805) 963-4408.

The show is the second for the landslide victims. On Feb. 12, Michael McDonald and Christopher Cross joined Jackson Browne at a benefit show that was also held in Santa Barbara.
