Seems like we plan to go away for the weekend and the number of fascinating musical opportunities increase dramatically. I realize it's just coincidence but, while we're in DC, the CT Composers and Improvisers Festival takes place in Middletown and Tomas Fujiwara returns to Firehouse 12 with The Hookup - that's just Friday.
That's just Saturday - there are talks on Friday and much more music throughout the weekend. To find out more, go to www.yale.edu/jazzcollective/festival.html. The best part? The weekend is free and open to the public!
