AMP TRIO FEAT. TAHIRA CLAYTON

Urban Heat Advisory presents “An Evening of Soul”, an annual upscale jazz experience based in the Washington, DC area. In 2019 Urban Heat Advisory hosted an “An Evening of Soul” with AMP Trio featuring Tahira Clayton. AMP Trio is an emerging jazz trio of stellar musicians currently making their mark on the New York City jazz scene. With the addition of Tahira Clayton, the powerhouse group brings a dynamic set of musical storytelling and Clayton’s voice brings to light legendary vocalists of our past, present, and future! The group has performed both nationally and internationally, recorded four widely acclaimed albums and Tahira Clayton’s debut album “Wait til Now” has recently opened to huge success. Stay tuned for the next “An Evening of Soul” upscale jazz experience in the Fall/Winter of 2020.

Jazzmeia Horn’s D.C. Hang

Dynamically empowering vocalist, Jazzmeia Horn, recently graced the DMV  with a stunning performance at The Library of Congress’ historic Coolidge Auditorium followed by an amazing impromptu appearance on stage at Takoma Station with DC’s own Vybe Band. Clearly, the Grammy nominated jazz vocalist made the most of her birthday visit to the nation’s capital sharing her remarkable voice while gaining an immediate following of fans in the process. A truly magical day of music in the DMV with historic vibes to remember for quite some time.

Kenny Garrett Returns to Blues Alley

      Legendary saxophonist Kenny Garrett recently returned to the DMV for an in-demand (eight shows in four nights) at the historic Blues Alley in Georgetown. As crowds lined the alley outside of the venue and down the alley, it became apparent that DC was well aware of the high-energy inspiring set that Garrett continues to deliver and knew they were in for a treat. As the summer festival season begins to heat up, so does the intensity of Kenny Garrett’s musical prowess touring across the globe and particularly in the U.S. Just days after a four night run to celebrate the grand opening of the newly opened premier jazz venue Keystone Korner in Baltimore, MD, Garrett was just down I-95 in the nation’s capital playing the intimate Blues Alley for a stellar series of shows with his powerhouse quintet giving devoted jazz lovers an amazing performance which seems to be even better than his uplifting performances just last year at Blues Alley.
