The Best of Kennedy Center Jazz
Stefon Harris, the Clayton Brothers, John Patitucci Trio
This time, we dip into the JazzSet experience for three quality groups -- the Stefon Harris Quartet, the Clayton Brothers (John and Jeff) and the John Patitucci Trio -- each onstage at the intimate Kennedy Center Jazz Club in Washington, D.C. It's our own Kennedy Center festival, on JazzSet, and every minute is hot!
