From the start, it has served as both an online resource and presenter of innovative shows. lists every upcoming jazz event in the area, complemented by a steady stream of articles (artist interviews, profiles of unsung jazz heroes, reviews, and more) that aim to welcome audiences of all kinds. Likewise, its monthly DC Jazz Loft concerts, educational events, NEXTfest production and other shows adopt a diverse and often unorthodox approach whether presenting in an empty warehouse, park or art gallery, pairing renowned artists with DCs finest local musicians, or showcasing young and experimental talent. This year, dozens of shows will reach thousands of audience members, notably through the 3-day Home Rule Music Festival, when jazz, go go, funk and soul are appreciated in multiple locations across the city.
