Sullivan Fortner came up in Roy Hargrove’s bands but he’s become something of a jazz celebrity accompanying the stupefying  vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant. He plays with a sensitive touch, always conscious of where the song is going.

He performs with the Bethesda Blues and Jazz Youth Orchestra to celebrate the life of longtime D.C. educator, bandleader and pillar of the community Fred Foss, one of the leaders of the BBJYO, who passed away suddenly last month.

All profits from the concert go to cover Fred’s funerary expenses.
