Music Monday: Upcoming Events in D.C Jazz

Monday, May 2, 2011

If you're looking for great upcoming jazz events happening in the District, The 16th Annual Women in Jazz Festival hosted by the fabulous Dee Dee Bridgewater takes place May 19-21!

Great acts like Tia Fuller, Dianne Reeves, Cassandra Wilson, and of course Dee Dee herself will be performing every night for three nights at 7pm in the Terrace Theater. The Women in Jazz fest is always a good time, and a great reason to come out and further support women taking music to higher places. I'm definitely hoping to catch Tia and her quartet on the first night. Her recent album, Decisive Steps, is an understated gem.

Head over to The Kennedy Center's site to see the lineup and purchase tickets.

Up next, the prolific trumpeter Terrence Blanchard will be performing at Georgetown's Blues Alley July 28th-30th! I absolutely love this man's music, but Terrence must not like me. He must not lol. During these exact dates I'll be out of town for my brother's wedding back home in Minnesota. *Shakes Lilliputian fists*

But that's no reason why you shouldn't head on over and catch Terrence performing with his group :) Purchase tickets here.
