* Herb Scott Trio

Herb Scott is something of a symbol of the modern jazz cat: he can blow on his alto sax with the best of them, capable of burning down the house with Charlie-Parker style rapid-fire phrasing, or can pick up the mic to drop some bars as a rapper, or even try his hand at reggateton filtered through a D.C.-born-and-bred jazzman. He’s exploring all of his options, creatively and econominally, as a musician.

He’s also a tireless champion of jazz in the District. He can be found most often on Capitol Hill, either leading the Wednesday jazz jam at Mr. Henry’s or advocating in the halls of power as Executive Director of the Capitol Hill Jazz Foundation.

Recently he’s been playing with a regular “chordless” trio: Andrew Musselman on bass and Terence Arnett on drums and tonight they play at Brij Coffeehouse & Juicebar’s “Wine-Down Jazz Nights.”

Food and drinks included with price of ticket.
