About JD Allen

JD AllenTenor saxophonist JD Allen was among those named "Rising Star" in DownBeat's 2010, 2009 and 2008 Critics' Poll and "Best New Artist" in the JazzTimes 2006 Readers' Poll. His albums have been featured on annual best-of lists in over 25 publications worldwide, including NPR’s Top 5 Albums of 2009, JazzTimes' Top 50 Albums of 2009, Village Voice's #9 Jazz Album of the Year and the Boston Globe's Top Jazz Album of the Year, 2009.

"A tenor saxophonist with an enigmatic, elegant and hard-driving style" (New York Times), JD Allen is a bright rising light on today’s international jazz scene. His unique and compelling voice on the instrument – the result of a patient and painstaking confrontation with the fundamentals of the art – has recently earned Allen a blaze of critical attention signaling his ascension to the upper ranks of the contemporary jazz world.

Allen’s latest trio release, VICTORY!, (Sunnyside), was featured on NPRMusic's popular "First Listen" before its release on May 17, 2011.

About Elijah Jamal Balbed

Since being named D.C.'s Best New Jazz Musician by the Washington City Paper last year, Elijah Jamal Balbed has become more than a fresh face on the District's jazz scene – he's become a leader. His late-night jam sessions every Saturday night at Utopia on U Street have become some of the most creative affairs in the city, and he often pulls top talent from D.C. and New York into the fold. At just 21 years old, this tenor titan in the mold of Dexter Gordon and Sonny Rollins (and perhaps JD Allen?) is making big waves in D.C. Catch him here with an all-star lineup of D.C. and New York cats.

  Add to my calendar



DC Jazz is a website dedicated to promoting Washington, D.C.’s vibrant, varied and surprisingly under-appreciated jazz scene. This site is designed to help everyone from novices to hardcore bopheads find live music that will fit their preferences on any given night. CapitalBop offers all of these features that you won’t find anywhere else:

  • a comprehensive, up-to-date calendar of all the jazz going on in Washington
  • a list of D.C. clubs complete with maps, profiles, contact information and essentials about pricing and food
  • a catalog of local jazz musicians, with their contact info
  • a steady stream of coverage — written articles and multimedia — on D.C. jazz music

In addition, CapitalBop produces live performances to showcase and stimulate the forward-focused creative thought that is occurring on the local jazz scene. At monthly D.C. Jazz Lofts, a variety of musicians present their music, which ranges across idioms — from acoustic to electric, bebop to free jazz. CapitalBop does not make any profit from these performances, and all proceeds go to the musicians.
