Presented by Nonsequitur & Earshot Jazz, supported by the French-American Jazz Exchange and administered by the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation and Cultural Services of the French Embassy.

The powerful and elastic duo of bassist Parker and drummer Hamid Drake teams up with the venerable New Orleans saxophonist Kidd Jordan and piano innovator François Tusques.
