That artist, with no prior knowledge of what’s being played, provides his or her initial reactions to the music and attempts to name the performer and tune. After some discussion, the pertinent information is presented and additional commentary follows.

The one-hour, free B&A session with White will be hosted by D.C.-based jazz journalist and radio personality Willard Jenkins. White will perform with Nicholas Payton XXX as part of the D.C. Jazz Festival. following this event, at 7:30 p.m. Click here to purchase tickets.
