Nicole Saphos doesn’t need a stage, lights or amplifiers to deliver a powerful performance. I found that out for myself last week at Saphos’ Takoma Park home — armed only with a camera, some microphones, and a whole slate of questions about how the young “indie jazz” singer-songwriter developed her unique musical personality.
The result of that hang was the latest video of the CB Sessions, our series that takes a close look at the thoughts and sounds of D.C. jazz musicians. Saphos plays two live sets for an intimate room at Local 16 on U Street this Friday and Saturday as part of CapitalBop’s Spotlight Residency. Don’t miss it: get tickets now, or invite your friends to join you!
