Sotto Sessions: Joseph Brotherton

1610 14th Street Northwest Washington
DC 20009

Trumpeter Joseph Brotherton’s confident, full-voiced trumpet sound can be heard in bands of all kinds across the District (and abroad). But his most consistent presence is still downstairs at Jojo’s, where he plays with a modern-leaning jazz quartet every Wednesday. Sit-ins are common, and on any given week you might hear spoken word, Afro-Beat vocals, and even stand-up comedy, in addition to a host of recognizable D.C. jazz musicians.

He takes up residency down the street at Sotto on Thursdays now too.
