The Mansion transforms into an intimate jazz club and fills with the sultry, seductive sounds of horns, violins, acoustic guitars, steel pans, and concertinas. These vibrant renditions and original compositions from around the globe—a musical mélange of innovative soul, funk, jazz—offer indisputable proof that the depth and breadth of locally grown DC jazz rivals the best in the world!
