Description

Join us at the Fall Into Jazz concert series featuring the Brian Settles Quartet, with special guest and opening artist Jessica Boykin-Settles.

Don't miss out on this evening of jazz with these extraordinarily talented artists.

Saxophonist, composer, and recording artist Brian Settles has established himself as a rising force with a long-term artistic vision. By blending the outwardly engaging with the deeply personal, he reconciles his intimate command of the jazz lineage with a commitment to his own experimental voice. Settles’ two albums feature entirely original music highlighting his buoyant, pithy compositions. His first album, Secret Handshake (Engine, 2011) featured the five-piece Central Union, and was named the best jazz record of the year by both the Washington City Paper and CapitalBop.com. Settles followed up with Folk (Engine, 2013), a trio album acclaimed by Something Else Reviews and the NYC Jazz Record. In 2015 he was listed as a rising star on tenor saxophone in Downbeat magazine’s critics poll, and he earned an artist fellowship from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. All the while he’s worked with young musicians as a teacher and mentor at the Washington Jazz Arts Institute (WJAI) since 2002.

“…Brian Settles is intriguing on record and absolutely heart-stopping on the bandstand… known for his versatility, expressiveness, and dizzying imagination.” – Michael J. West, Washington City Paper
