New photo gallery: Kiyem Ade Sextet

Written by 

Tuesday night had me back at Bohemian Caverns for another show in conjunction with the D.C. Jazz Festival featuring the Kiyem Ade Sextet with Kiyem Ade on vocals, Lenny Robinson on drums, Michael Bowie on bass, Vince Evans on piano, Ron Sutton Jr. on saxophone, and Donvonte McCoy on trumpet.

The sextet's versions of standards were inventive and inviting, finishing off with an excellent and dynamic version of Caravan, the classic tune composed by Juan Tizol and first performed by Duke Ellington in 1937. Their rendition has been with me throughout the evening as I've been going through photos from their set. You can find a link to the shots on my Galleries page. Enjoy!
