Sunday 11/2/14: Tedd Baker returns to DC Jazz Jam on sax!

tbakerPlease join us this Sunday as top sax player Tedd Baker returns to the jam session once again as our Monthly Master jazz artist!

Popular local jazz site CapitalBop has this to say about Tedd:

“The saxophonist Tedd Baker, one of the most revered on the D.C. scene, has toured the world as part of the State Department’s Jazz Ambassadors program and is a member of the U.S. Air Force jazz band, the Airmen of Note. But when he steps in front of his own combo, Baker’s liable to bring the house down; he has a broad, powerful tone and a sure-footed improvisational attack that winds and zags. It’s confident and questioning, all at once.” — CapitalBop

Come sit in with Tedd and our terrific First Sunday house band.  No cover!  6:30pm-9:30pm @ Dahlak (1771 U Street NW).
