* Alison Crockett’s ‘Obrigada’ EP Release Show

November 5, 2018 @ 8:00 pm
Blues Alley
1073 Wisconsin Ave NW
Washington, DC 20007
$22 (Plus $12 Minimum and $5 Fees)

Allison Crockett blends neo-soul; new-school jazz; and city blues into a music that’s both political and personal. She has the laggard rhythm of an Erykah Badu, the dance instinct of a Chaka Kahn, and the maverick relationship to the jazz canon of a Lizz Wright.

She celebrates the release of her new, Brazilian-inspired EP Obrigada at Blues Alley with a working band featuring the pianist Vince Evans and Origem’s Alejandro and Leonardo Lucini. Two separate sets at 8 and 10 p.m.
