Takoma Station Hosts Tuesday Jazz Jams

Where do you like to listen to live music in Takoma Park.

Takoma Park may be known for its folk music, but there is a lively jazz scene in the city as well.

There's the annual Takoma Park Jazz Fest, which always sees a big crowd to kick off the summer.

And for a weekly treat there's the Takoma Station jazz jam every Tuesday. Musicians can come and sit in with the house band to trade licks with other D.C.-based musicians.

Some of my greatest memories from when I lived in Philadelphia was watching the area's great jazz musicians cut heads every week at the open jam. The spontaneity of improvisation mixed with a great atmosphere for hot jazz make Takoma Station's Tuesday jams a best bet for weekday summer entertainment.
