Tenor saxophonist Brian Settles can be found just about anywhere there’s jazz being played in D.C., comfortable at shaping the expansive vision of composers like Steve Arnold, leading the charged, Afro-Caribbean anthems of Reginald Cyntje or honking icy, haunting free music with Jason Moran or Michael Formanek. Settles’ own work as a leader is amorphous and pulsating, but surges with a kind of spiritual vibrancy.
