* Marshall Keys (DCJF) (Livestream)

DC Jazz Festival from Home
Donations Encouraged

Saxophonist Marshall Keys is one of those cats that’s been on the D.C. scene for so long its hard to think of it without him. He came up playing alongside young titans like Geri Allen in the 1960s (when she was a student at Howard), welcomed Stevie Wonder to jam at Takoma Station in the ’80s, and has mastered every mainstream style of jazz in between.

On his favored alto, he can swing softly or soar over bebop changes, groove into a blues or mix-it up with some funkified fusion.

He performs in a live stream as part of the DC Jazz Fest from Home
