This year there will be 5 shows, on the last Saturday of every month from May through September, on the lawn at the Petworth Rec Center at 8th and Taylor St. NW. The talent is sourced in collaboration with Omrao Brown of Bohemian Caverns, and is truly the best of the best in local jazz.

  • Omrao Brown is a great dude, and has done a lot for many of us DC musicians – he’s not just another club owner. He loves the music and the city, and does so much to support the talent that DC has to offer.

    And the Jolley Twins are two of the nicest people – and most unbelievably killing musicians – that I’ve had the pleasure to work with. If you ever thought the younger generation doesn’t honor the jazz tradition, they will disprove that notion for you. Nate and Noble are phenomenal players.

  • Love the Petworth Jazz project! Would like to see more gender balance in the artists whose works are being auctioned.
