18th Street Theme, live in Vermont!

I returned a couple of weeks ago from the annual Vermont Jazz Center summer workshop, an intense six days of excellent music and excellent food in the beautiful surroundings of southern Vermont. At the student concert that closed the week, I had an opportunity to perform my “18th Street Theme” with my student ensemble. I wrote this for the 3rd anniversary of the DC Jazz Jam last year, and we’ve played it almost every week since to close out the weekly jams at Dahlak restaurant in NW DC. I’m hoping to upload a recording of the Theme from the jam soon; in the meantime, here’s our Vermont take on it.
