Few musicians in D.C., a town full of great jazz players, command as much respect or presence on the bandstand as Nasar Abadey. The master percussionist and drummer leads his own group, Supernova, through quietly bristling spiritual jazz, but can also be found co-leading the Washington Renaissance Orchestra with Allyn Johnson, or playing behind fellow elders like Andrew White and Steve Novosel.

He leads an group of some of D.C. jazz’s greatest voices at Westminster’s Jazz Night in D.C. including bassist James King, his longtime collaborator, and pianist Janelle Gill.
