It’s going to be a harmonious weekend in the Washington area. The DC Jazz Festival kicks off tomorrow, bringing hundreds of verteran musicians to venues all over the District. If you can’t wait until the weekend to get into the spirit, pianist, composer, and producer Erik Deutsch plays two sets at Northwest Washington’s Bohemian Caverns tonight. The session ace takes a break from backing Norah Jones and Rosanne Cash to perform some of his far funkier original material.
