I can’t shut up about the Thad Wilson Jazz Orchestra, which holds court every Monday night at Bohemian Caverns. But it’s not all that Wilson does—he also maintains a “chordless” trio (featuring drummer Lenny Robinson and bassist Ameen Saleem) that plays every Thursday at JoJo Restaurant and Bar, just a few blocks down U Street.
This weekend, though, Wilson’s doing something different from either of these: a quartet with a piano player (Allen Johnson), along with Eric Wheeler on bass and Russell Carter on drums. “I just wanted something really, really loose,” says Wilson. “Kind of like a Miles Davis at the Plugged Nickel type of feel.”
You can hear ’em at Bohemian Caverns on Saturday night, with two shows at 9 and 11 for $15.
