This year's Rosslyn Jazz Festival will be on Saturday, September 6. The official line-up is superb:
- Rebirth Brass Band: New Orleans Grammy-winners who uphold the tradition of brass bands while bringing in funk and hip-hop rhythms.
- Red Baraat: Eight-piece pioneering band from Brooklyn that merges North Indian bhangra rhythms with elements of jazz, go-go, brass funk and hip-hop.
- Ghost Train Orchestra: Founded by composer/arranger Brian Carpenter, a critically-acclaimed ensemble whose bold, energetic performances reimagine jazz from the 20s and 30s.
- The Corey Wallace DUBtet: A five-piece band led by Baltimore trombonist Corey Wallace, who’s been called one of the area’s “best and most consistently exploratory” musicians by the Ode Street Tribune.
