This past summer the trio of Ian MacKaye, Amy Farina and Joe Lally avoided adopting a name in an effort to keep their music offline and in the moment of live performance.

“Trumpeter Joseph Brotherton holds it down every Wednesday at Jojo on U Street, hosting an eclectic session that features hard-hitting groove adaptations of jazz standards alongside spoken word, Afrobeat and even stand-up comedy. Drummer Kelton Norris… is young, but you can hear him on the bandstand with giants of D.C. jazz like Michael Bowie and Allyn Johnson, executing everything from deep, Blakey-like swing to slick drum & bass grooves.” See both DC jazz musicians lead their own ensembles at CapitalBop‘s monthly Jazz Loft Sunday night at Takoma Park’s Rhizome.
