Event Details

Tonight’s show is part two, and it features some of the heaviest hitters in the D.C. and Baltimore metro areas.

Lenny Robinson/Lafayette Gilchrist/Tarus Mateen
Known as one of the most in-demand jazz drummers in the D.C. area, Lenny Robinson is almost never wanting for gigs. But when he assembles his own ensemble to perform his original music, as we’ve asked him to do at many CapitalBop shows in the past, the result is consistently some of the deepest music around. His bouncing sound is steeped in the jazz tradition, but the music moves things forward, presenting contemporary jazz that is spacious and sensitive, compelling and challenging, original yet familiar. Here he’s joined by two of the most idiosyncratic and internationally beloved improvisers in the area: Lafayette Gilchrist on piano and Tarus Mateen on bass.

Organix Trio
Saxophonist and flutist Jamal Moore recently returned to his home city of Baltimore after receiving a masters degree in African-American he studied with the legendary Wadada Leo Smith, among many others. Organix Trio uses jazz’s traditional saxophone-trio format, with Moore accompanied by drummer Warren “Trae” Crudup III and bassist Jeron White. The sounds they create, however, are absolutely transcendent, taking the audience on a spiritual journey through music, and always planting you firmly in the present moment.

Pat Cain/Nate Scheible
Relative newcomers to the D.C. music world, Pat Cain and Nate Scheible were highly active in the experimental communities of their cities of origin. Cain specializes in analog tape loops in which he records live and manipulates sounds emminating from cassettes, a classic approach within musique concrete. The abstract drone is then amplified by his piercing tenor saxophone. His focus is on sound more than notes, building tension and layers with the manipulation of homemade electronic instruments. Scheible, a drummer, has the right sensibility to interact with a musician like Cain: He also works with tape loops, and approaches his drum kit with a fire reminiscent of the legendary free jazz drummers of the 1960s.
