This is ostensibly a hip-hop show—-and rightly so, perhaps, since RCDC is backing up Mos Def at his Kennedy Center concert earlier in the evening. But the members of the quartet are actually four of the hottest young up-and-comers in the jazz world: pianist Robert Glasper, alto saxophonist Casey Benjamin, bassist Derrick Hodge, and drummer Chris Dave.
The show is at 10 p.m. as part of the Black L.U.V. Festival—-and not a bad compromise if you don’t have tickets to the sold-out Mos Def show.
