British guitarist John Collin takes inspiration from blues, drones and the natural world, among other sources, to craft his improvisations. He performs in a duo with area saxophonist and creative musician Sarah Hughes. A longtime fixture on both the Beltway and Baltimore jazz scenes, she can swing soft, sweet and cool like Lee Konitz and swerve in an instant to the dense yet untethered tonality of Anthony Braxton. Even when she sounds delicate, there is a pure strength to her playing.
