From an email:

“Takoma Station Tavern was the site of a great jazz scene in the 80’s and 90’s, when jazz luminaries like Wynton Marsalis graced the stage and local jazz heroes like Paul Carr and Marshall Keys were a regular presence. In the mid-90’s, the club changed formats to R&B and go-go. But great jazz is making a return to the club, located at 6916 4th St. NW in Takoma DC near the Takoma metro stop.
