The April 29 Friday night Live Jazz performance – 5:00pm to 6:30pm – at Eastern Market Metro Plaza features trumpeter Joseph Brotherton.
Brotherton started trumpeting at age 8. After serving for four years as trumpet player in U.S. Marine Corps Band Quantico he became a freelance musician based in DC and is now regular of the local jazz scene, performing up and down the east coast. He has appeared with a host of music notables (Gregory Porter, Aaron Neville, Dr. John, Roy Hargrove, Nicholas Payton, and Kermit Ruffins) across several genres (R&B, salsa, gospel, studio, fusion and classical). He has a Wednesday-night residency at JoJo Restaurant & Bar, 1518 U Street, NW.
“Joseph Brotherton is an exciting and spectacular soloist, well-schooled in the tradition, and post-bop concepts. His solos are notable for their clarity, connectivity of ideas, clear articulation, intonation, and tasteful and measured use of his ample technique.” – Jazz Improv Magazine
