Brian Settles is wakefully minimalist as a saxophonist and a composer. His tone on the tenor sax warbles and decries, and it’s established him as one of D.C.’s most self-possessed improvisers. He performs in a duo with his wife Jessica Boykin-Settles, a widely respected vocalist and a professor at Howard University who has mentored a handful of the city’s fine young singers. Her approach is possessed of a firm, affirmative delicateness, and she is an expert improviser.
