Jazz Setlist, March 6-12: Go See Lewis Nash

Friday, March 7
Yeah, yeah, I know. Both of the Lewis Nash Quintet's shows at the Kennedy Center are sold out. But you know what? Call and check. Stand in line for cancellations at the box office. Sneak the fuck in. (Errr, no, do not sneak the fuck in.) It would be unconscionable not to recommend the [...]

Friday, Feb. 1
Festival season is a long way off, but there are a few events that remind us of their imminence: the Mid Atlantic Jazz Festival, a traveling iteration of Monterey Jazz, stops tonight at the Kennedy Center.

Jazz Setlist, July 1-7: Jolley Brothers, Brian Settles, and More

Friday, July 2
Nathan and Noble Jolley Jr. are together one of the most powerful musical forces known to man. The twin sons of local legend Noble Jolly Sr., who passed away in 2003, play drums and keyboards, respectively, and swing each with such intensity and aggression that it can often seem like they're barely in [...]
