Saxophonist Elijah Jamal Balbed was born and raised in Silver Spring and is a consummate student of the D.C. music scene: He’s equally comfortable blowing some burnished, buoyant hard-bop as he is grooving in the pocket of a go-go band. He can often be found leading groups of some of the other younger statesman of D.C. jazz through originals and standards that swing just right.

He’s joined at Westminster Church’s Jazz Night in D.C. by an all-star band of D.C. jazz cats including pianist Mark G. Meadows, bassist Elliot Seppa and drummer Kelton Norris.
