Elijah Jamal Balbed

When: Sat., March 19, 8 & 10 p.m. 2016

Saxophonist Elijah Jamal Balbed lives in Queens, but he’s from D.C., which means that his straight-ahead jazz isn’t so straight. Working with D.C. legend Chuck Brown, Balbed brings a go-go sensibility to his tunes, even if it’s just in a quick exit from a solo. Your heart beats faster to catch up. Balbed has cred, too. In 2013, he was Washington City Paper’s Best Tenor Saxophonist, and he’s just finished a stint at Jazz at Lincoln Center in Doha, Qatar. —Chris Vitiello
