A theme for the jam

I’m happy to be part of the second Sunday house band for the DC Jazz Jam, a weekly Sunday evening event that has grown into a very active jazz happening over the past year. The jam regularly attracts five or more guest horn players, plus plenty of rhythm players to sit in with the house quartet.

[Updated August 7] With those horns in mind, I wrote the “18th Street Theme” for the jam, hoping to capture an Art Blakey vibe, particularly if we can get a few of those sax and trumpet players to join in on the head. I hope we’ll get a chance to try out the new tune later this month (or next).
