Tuesday nights at Twins Jazz now belong to local flautist and saxophonist Charles Rahmat Woods, whose edgy trio the Blue Tuesday Club (with pianist Jerrel Pederman and drummer Joe Link) has a regular gig at the U Street haunt. The band’s name was inspired by the intensity of this year’s primary elections—-a sign that Woods is something of a political animal, like most of us in this town.
To that end, you get an extra bang for your buck in going to see the Blue Tuesday Club Trio. From now through October, one dollar of your $10 cover charge to see Woods and his gang on Tuesday nights at Twins will go towards Barack Obama‘s campaign. You’ve heard about his historic fundraising with small-amount donors? Now you can be one of them, and get some wonderful music for your trouble.
