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.
