the jazz piano, featuring local and national artists

Bob Butta long ago established himself as a pianist deserving greater recognition. Now that he's released his first recording of straight-ahead jazz as a leader, he no longer has to rely on word of mouth to promote his talent and interests. The music on "Windows" speaks volumes.
Join the artists of Baltimore Musicales for the premiere of this virtual program featuring Jarrod Lee, Adrienne Ivey, Justin Harrison, Angeli Ferrette, Nigel Rowe, Dana Kristina-Joi Morgan, and Jasmine Barnes. The artists will speak about the music that resonates with them during this historic moment in our country, and perform songs and ensembles by Margaret Bonds, Hall Johnson, Bernice Johnson Reagon and more.

Rhythminic Accents is a cutting-edge jazz ensemble that features jazz standards, original jazz tunes, classic funk, R&B, and popular tunes—all played with its own unique flavor. The band takes its name from the title of a well-known Thelonious Monk tune, Rhythm-A-Ning. Keyboardist/bandleader Bill Washburn founded the group in 1998.
