Mark Wade Trio

Friday, September 23, 2022, 8 pm

Modern jazz composer and bassist Mark Wade is open to appreciating and co-creating great music. Like Keith Jarrett, Wynton Marsalis, and Esperanza Spaulding, he is not limited by genre. However, jazz is his main love. Throughout his career, Wade has played with jazz notables James Spaulding, Eddie Palmieri, Conrad Herwig, and Jimmy Heath. In 2022, he released his fourth album titled “True Stories” which is an amalgamation of his previous albums and improvisation of well-known tunes. Wade will be joined by his trio namesake which consists of renowned Tim Harrisson on piano and Scott Neumann on drums. You will not want to miss this!

Quiet Life Motel 

Friday, October 21, 2022, 8 pm 

With a nocturnal, funky, and cinematic sound, the music of Quiet Life Motel weaves together jazz harmonies, shimmering orchestral textures, and frolicsome grooves. The group is led by violinist and composer David Schulman, whose music has been called “mysterious and beautiful” by the The Washington Post. Schulman has written and recorded the theme music for NPR’s The Big Listen and BBC’s Americana. He has appeared frequently at the DC Jazz Festival and launched the ArtSounds series at the Hirshhorn Museum. Whether he utilizes an acoustic bass, percussion, or alto sax, Schulman loves to extend the shape and spirit of music in unexpected ways with original compositions. Join us on a journey of unexpected sounds in jazz improvisation.
