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 pairs with Eliot Seppa, a frequent collaborator and now a seasoned and popular veteran on the bass in the District, for an outdoor concert at the Kreeger Museum in Foxhall. Masks are required.
