Following a triumphant debut at NYC’s world-famous Metropolitan Room earlier this year, this very special performance will celebrate the release of his new CD “Right to Love.” This will be the first release event featuring the Thad Wilson Jazz Orchestra. “Right to Love” has become a fast addition to jazz and big-band radio playlists here in DC, across the country, into Canada, and as far away as Australia. Here’s what they’ve said:

“. . . the kind of phrasing you got from the Coles, Eckstines . . . . more jazz in his soul than a Broadway cat can be expected to show, this is a fine set . . . .” — Chris Specter (Midwest Record)

“Tasty stuff, in that sweetly soulful spot where jazz and pop come together . . . . work that wears well and will last . . . Washington is an artist who has spent many years developing his chops and knows how to apply his instrument to give shape to each song.” — Midtown Alex (Amazon)

“. . . a wonderful CD and Steve is an excellent vocalist. His interpretations of ‘Caravan,’ ‘Quiet Nights,’ ‘The Lamp is Low,’ ‘Alright Okay You Win’ and ‘Avalon’ are right in the pocket.” — Jim Stone, host of “Big Band Swing” on WNLZ Lansing MI

“… a versatile and personable singer . . . . simply nice to hear.” — J.B. (All About Jazz)

The show will highlight music from the CD and more from Steve’s varied and exciting repertoire. And as an added bonus, celebrity comic Tony Woods will set the stage for the show as emcee for the evening. This promises to be a dynamic evening of entertainment, so bring someone special. Dancers are welcome.

To learn more about the artist and the CD “Right to Love“, check out Steve Washington on Facebook or visit him online at www.stevewashington.biz.

Washington, D.C. standout Sharón Clark has brought festival and concert audiences to their feet across the U.S. and Europe.  Her New York run drew raves from the NY Times and the Wall Street Journal, and she won New York’s Bistro Award for Best Vocalist.  Ms. Clark has made multiple international tours in recent years, making her debut in Israel and returning to Russia, where she has developed a major following.  Her most recent release, “Do it Again — My Tribute to Shirley Horn,” is on its third printing, and she grabs top honors wherever she goes. Ms. Clark won the Gold Medal and $10,000 top prize at the Savannah Music Festival’s American Traditions Competition. She then took first place in the Billie Holiday Vocal Competition, which offers a $2,500 prize along with a featured appearance with the Baltimore Symphony. Ms. Clark appears regularly in DC at Blues Alley and Loews Madison Hotel. A featured soloist with the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, the Richmond Symphony, and the Baltimore Symphony, Clark has headlined the Duke Ellington Jazz Festival, the Cape May Jazz Festival and the Savannah Music Festival.  Both the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra and The Ludacris Foundation chose Ms. Clark to perform for their separate tributes to Quincy Jones.

“New and amazing . . . an absolute triumph”!

Will Friedwald, Wall Street Journal

“You can’t underestimate the transformation of what seems like an ordinary song when an interpreter like Sharón Clark tears it apart and peers inside.”

Stephen Holden, New York Times

“A revelation . . .  I never thought I’d hear a singer with the range
