Let's head back to what's fast becoming DC's late-night, go-to area, H Street, NE, and more specifically the Atlas Performing Arts Center. Intersections takes over starting later in February, and the Library of Congress hosts one of their FREE jazz shows at 10 pm on this night: Theo Bleckmann and Ben Monder. “A vocalist of inventive instinct and assiduous musicality,” according to The New York Times, Bleckmann joins with a musician who has been “justly praised as one of the most original guitarists of the 21st Century” (Hartford Courant).

Our friend Solomon runs the logistics for the great Library of Congress concert program. And he loves it when they get to come to the Atlas. The plan now would be to meet at 8:30 at the Atlas and head to dinner somewhere nearby. I've been to a good Thai place across the street. There's also the great pie place a few doors down.
Vocalist Theo Bleckmann operates from a “boldly dynamic bandwidth” (NPR) covering jazz, cabaret, classical, experimental and improvised music. (Solomon says he's wild.) His innovative partnership with guitarist Ben Monder traverses a sound spectrum that embraces Harold Arlen, Billie Holiday,Yip Harburg, Joni Mitchell, Ornette Coleman, Thelonious Monk and original compositions.
