DC Jazz Fes­ti­val

Where Washington - - CALENDAR -

Ask music lovers to name a few hot beds of jazz, and the cap­i­tal may not top the list. But D.C.’s the birth­place of greats like Duke Elling­ton, who played many a gig at leg­endary clubs such as The Howard The­atre. The city’s sto­ried past meets the present at this fest that brings a ros­ter of to­day’s head­lin­ing and emerg­ing tal­ent. High notes in­clude top crooner Lalah Hath­away at The Howard June 9, 20-time Grammy-win­ning gui­tarist Pat Metheny (above) at the Kennedy Cen­ter June 12 and a full line-up of acts at scenic Yards Park June 16-18. dc­jaz­zfest.org
