Saxophonist Brad Linde may be the most prolific musician in the D.C. jazz scene. He’s been involved in 32 different groups, many under his own leadership, over his last 15 years in D.C., ranging from a band dedicated to free-jazz arrangements of Roger Miller honky-tonk tunes to the Bohemian Caverns Jazz Ensemble in all its majesty and might. In all of them, he tends to work in his love for more free, expressive playing, the harmonic complexity of Duke Ellington and Lennie Tristano, swing, and a more spontaneous spirit from all the musicians.
The Therapy Band is Linde’s chance to blow-off some steam at the end of the year and get even weirder and whackier; he hunkers down over the piano for some standards and holiday favorites (and likely some free improv).
