At CapitalBop’s D.C. Jazz Loft last month, a variety of approaches to experimentalism made themselves heard. Whether it was the rock-tinged squall of Kung Fu Bastard, the unadorned and soulful singing of Heidi Martin (accompanied only by bass and drums), or the five-trombone attack of Reginald Cyntje’s Trombone Ensemble, every moment was rife with the shock of the new. If you missed the show, or if you just want to relive the music, check out the half-hour audio special below. It features interviews with the night’s performers, and one full song from each of them, recorded at the loft.

This month’s loft will be held this coming Sunday. Keep an eye on us; details about that show are coming tomorrow.
