The Capital Bop Blog (http://capitalbop.com/) sponsors and organizes a monthly showcase called the DC Jazz Loft Sessions and has become an integral part of the local jazz scene. I recently sat down with the Capital Bop progenitors, Luke Stewart and Giovanni Russonello to talk about the monthly series’ past, present and future; how the series has become a place for musicians to experiment and reach beyond traditional audiences, lamenting the original Red Door space, cross-scene pollination and of course the inevitable comparison with New York.

The upcoming Loft Session is this Sunday 12/9 and will be featuring groups led by bassist Blake Meister, the duo guitarist Rodney Richardson & trumpeter Joe Herrera, and guitarist John Lee will be Marvin upstairs at 14th & U. (2007 14th Street Northwest  Washington, DC 20009)  http://capitalbop.com/dcjazzloft/
