A New York jazz scene staple, Andrea Wolper Quartet has been praised in the industry press as “easily superior to the ever expanding population in the singer/songwriter category,” and Wolper has been named one of the “great jazz singers.” The group’s style combines poetry, text and improvisation to create  beautifully complex compositions, and when she’s not leading her own band, Wolper can often be found improvising with a slew of other acts on the robust modern jazz scene.

Saturday 9/26. Donations accepted, 8 pm. Thomas Jefferson Memorial Church, 717 Rugby Rd. 293-8179.
