By Scott Goldfine

Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr. and Joe Williams were among those who took to the Santa Monica (Calif.) Civic stage Saturday night for the 20th anniversary of the Neighbors of Watts charity. The Ray Brown trio’s acoustic jazz set and Byron Allen’s standup routine were the high points. A glaring absence was Robert Townsend, who was a no-show.

All in all, a subdued but entertaining show.
