Theme Song

In August 2012, Second Sunday house band pianist Oren Levine wrote a theme song for the DC Jazz Jam, called “18th Street Theme.”  Oren describes it as being in the style of Art Blakey.  We debuted the theme song at the jazz jam’s 3-year anniversary session on August 12, 2012.  Since then, the jam session traditionally closes out each Sunday with the “18th Street Theme.”  In February 2014, Oren added lyrics to the theme.

Here is a recording of the theme: [Link to be added]
