WASHINGTON, DC: CHRIS THOMAS KING AT BLUES ALLEY

Chris Thomas King, a New Orleans Grammy Award-winning musician and actor, will perform at BLUES ALLEY 1073 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Washington, DC - 202-337-4141) on Thursday through Sunday, August 28th through 31st with shows at 8:00 & 10:00 pm. King is initially known for his audacious fusion of blues and hip-hop. King reached a whole new audience with his film debut in the Coen Brothers film, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, not only appearing on the award-winning soundtrack, but establishing himself as a serious dramatic actor as well. Chris Thomas King has been a determined progressive, hoping to reinvigorate the blues as a living African American art with a more contemporary approach and adamantly refusing to treat it as a museum piece whose "authentic" forms needed careful preservation. King eventually modified that approach to a certain degree, attempting to create a more explicit link between blues tradition and the general musical present. Call for cover/minimum information.

WASHINGTON, DC: REGINALD CYNTJE'S SPIRITUAL AWAKENING

Trombonist Reginald Cyntje's Spiritual Awakening will be presented atBOHEMIAN CAVERNS (2001 Eleventh Street N.W., Washington, DC - 202-299-0800 - ) on Friday & Saturday, August 29th & 30th with shows at 8:00 & 10:00 pm. Reginald Cyntje is joined by Victor Provost - steel pan, Christie Dashiell - vocals, Brian Settles - sax,Allyn Johnson - piano, Amin Gumbs - drums, and Heman Burney - bass. Born on the island of Dominica and raised on St. Thomas, USVI, trombonist Reginald Cyntje has been mixing cultural heritage with Black American Music since the beginning of his formative years. Growing up in the US Virgin Islands, he was steeped in the rich cultural music known as Quelbe (the official music of the USVI). Quelbe was Reginald's introduction to improvised music. One of his favorite Quelbe songs, Queen Mary, has a powerful message set to syncopated rhythm. In 2013, Cyntje released his sophomore album simply titled Love. After debuting at #3 on the CMJ Jazz chart, Love made it to #10 on the CMJ Top 40 Jazz Chart. The album is a tribute to the human spirit. On April 22, 2014 (Earth Day), Reginald Cyntje released his third album Elements of Life featuring pianist Allyn Johnson, bassist Herman Burney, drummer Amin Gumbs, vocalist Christie Dashiell, steel pannist Victor Provost and saxophonist Brian Settles. The album explores the connection between the human being and the elements that nurture us. There is a $20 cover.

BETHESDA, MD: JANIVA MAGNESS "ORIGINAL" ALBUM RELEASE TOUR

The Janiva Magness "Original" Album Release Tour featuring special guest Bobby Radcliff will be presented at BETHESDA BLUES & JAZZ SUPPER CLUB (7719 Wisconsin Avenue, Bethesda, MD - 240-330-4500 - ) on Friday, August 29th at 8:00 pm. Janiva Magness' new album Original stretches the artistic boundaries of roots, rock and soul music. Its 11 songs seamlessly weave all three genres into a highly original approach defined by nakedly honest storytelling and the live-wire emotionalism of Magness' two-and-a-half octave range, buoyed by arrangements that effortlessly blend traditional sounds with edgy experimentation. Magness had much to overcome in making this adventurous album. But Original finds the Los Angeles-based artist undefeated - turning in her finest recorded vocal performances, co-writing a majority of tracks for the first time and testing herself by taking risks along with her production foil Dave Darling, whose credits include Glen Campbell, Brian Setzer, Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx and Stray Cats, and whose instincts compelled Magness to tap her deepest creative powers and led the songs to sonically unpredictable places. There is a $25 cover.

Ever the fearless voyager, explorer, pioneer and keeper of tradition, the 3-time Grammy-winner won the 2011 GRAMMY for Best Jazz Vocal Album for Eleanora Fagan (1915-1959): TO BILLIE WITH LOVE FROM DEE DEE. Bridgewater's career has always bridged musical genres. She earned her first professional experience as a member of the legendary Thad Jones/Mel Louis Big Band, and throughout the 70's she performed with such jazz notables as Max Roach, Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon and Dizzy Gillespie. After a foray into the pop world during the 1980s, she relocated to Paris and began to turn her attention back to jazz. Signing with the Universal Music Group as a producer (Bridgewater produces all of her CDs), Bridgewater released a series of critically acclaimed titles beginning with Keeping Tradition in 1993. All but one, including her wildly successful double GRAMMY Award-winning tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, Dear Ella - have received GRAMMY nominations. Bridgewater also pursued a parallel career in musical theater, winning a Tony Award for her role as "Glinda" in The Wiz in 1975. Her other theatrical credits include Sophisticated Ladies, Black Ballad, Carmen, Cabaret and the West End Production of Lady Day, for which Bridgewater received the British Laurence Olivier Nomination for Best Actress in a Musical.

Chris Thomas King, a New Orleans Grammy Award-winning musician and actor, will perform at BLUES ALLEY(1073 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Washington, DC - 202-337-4141) on Thursday through Sunday, August 28th through 31st with shows at 8:00 & 10:00 pm. King is initially known for his audacious fusion of blues and hip-hop. King reached a whole new audience with his film debut in the Coen Brothers film, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, not only appearing on the award-winning soundtrack, but establishing himself as a serious dramatic actor as well. Chris Thomas King has been a determined progressive, hoping to reinvigorate the blues as a living African American art with a more contemporary approach and adamantly refusing to treat it as a museum piece whose "authentic" forms needed careful preservation. King eventually modified that approach to a certain degree, attempting to create a more explicit link between blues tradition and the general musical present. Call for cover/minimum information.

With his "Pandeiro Jazz" project Scott Feiner has expanded the possibilities and perception of the Brazilian pandeiro worldwide - an instrument not normally spoken of in the same context with American music. Feiner has walked a fascinating road from the jazz world of Manhattan to the nightlife of Rio de Janeiro. Born in New York City, and formally a guitarist, Feiner received a Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Studies/Guitar at the Hartt School of Music in Hartford, Connecticut, where he studied with the legendary saxophonist Jackie McLean. During the early '90s he was a respected guitarist on the New York jazz scene, playing with some of the city's finest musicians. In 1999, during his first trip to Brazil, Feiner discovered the pandeiro, the percussion instrument that would become his passion and new means of musical expression. He moved to Rio de Janeiro in 2001 and after only a few years became a respected pandeirista, playing in the traditional settings of Rio. In March 2014 Feiner released his fourth album, "A View From Below", which also highlights his talents as a composer. There is a $25 cover plus a $10 food/drink minimum.

Born August 29th, 1920, Charlie "Bird" Parker was one of the most influential and iconic artists in jazz history. As the central figure in the development of bebop in the 1940s Bird was a legendary figure in his own lifetime and was idolized by those who worked with him including Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Bud Powell and Miles Davis. He was the inspiration for Birdland and practically defined its mission as the home for modern jazz in New York City. Since his death in 1955 at age 34 Bird has inspired every subsequent generation of jazz artist and left a rich legacy of distinctive compositions and signature melodic vocabulary that still informs every style of jazz. For his celebration Birdland presents a group of jazz all-stars who can move seamlessly between classic and contemporary Bird-inspired material. There is a $40 cover plus a $10 food/drink minimum.
