* Thad Wilson Quintet

January 31, 2020 @ 6:00 pm
Westminster Presbyterian Church
400 I St SW
Washington, DC 20024
$5, Free for 16 and Under

Trumpeter Thad Wilson has been a presence on the D.C. jazz scene, and a cornerstone of the straight-ahead jazz circles. He plays trumpet and flugelhorn in a highly lyrical, almost romantic style. He’s as comfortable weaving sonic portraits with a big band as he is playing out in the small combo setting.

He’s a favorite of the congregants at D.C.’s jazz church, at which he plays tonight with a quintet of some of the best musicians in Washington, D.C.: Allyn Johnson on piano, Brian Settles on saxophone, bassist Michael Bowie and drummer Kelton Norris.
