Today I stopped by Songbyrd Cafe in Adams Morgan. I loved the energy in the place! The coffee wasn’t the best I’ve ever had, but the vibes made up for it (almost!).
Music is one thing we as humans have in common. No matter race, age, religion, or geography, we all need music. My first introduction to jazz music was in 5th grade when I began playing the alto saxophone after trying 3 other instruments. Then I joined the jazz band in high school, and my band teacher Mr. Keith Oxman made me passionate about the genre. Sadly, I haven’t picked up my saxophone since I graduated high school 4 years ago, but I will always remember listening, and attempting to play, Kind of Blue by Miles Davis and Moanin’ by Charles Mingus.
I wanted to share some of my favorite tunes at the moment!
- -Ugh, Those Feels Again by Snoh Aalegra
- The Lion King: The Gift by Beyoncé
- Everywhere by Chloe x Halle
- Cuz I Love You by Lizzo
