Zach Bartholomew Trio Plays at Martin's
Halfway up the coast from hometown Tallahassee on their "Get Out of Town" tour, Zach Bartholomew, Brandon Robertson and Miles Bozeman performed in Washington D.C. for the first time Monday night at Billy Martin's Tavern in Georgetown. They'll be back again Tuesday evening before moving on to Greenville, South Carolina Wednesday.

College friends, each with "different backgrounds, voices and personalities," Zach told The Georgetown Dish, but all "passionate about jazz." Calling their music "a three-way conversation that combines into one voice," Zach explained their influences. Drawing on 100 years of jazz, their sound comes from a lineage of great jazz trios, improvised "with a modern twist."
General Manager Ron Newman enjoys the sounds of smooth jazz.
Pianist Zach Bartholomew uses an intellectual approach to extract a distinct swing from the intricate rhythms. Adding texture, drummer Miles Bozeman mixes smoothly with the hip hop tempo of Brandon Robertson's bass lines.
Come to Martin's at 1264 Wisconsin Avenue Tuesday evening to enjoy the Zach Bartholomew Trio.
