Overview

Sittin’ In introduces audiences to new cutting-edge artists. It defies genre, often drawing from everything from straight-ahead jazz to freestyle hip hop and all points in between. There’s an unpredictability to the night, which we enthusiastically embrace! Sometimes you’ll experience a finely tuned set and sometimes you can catch a totally improvised show by seven people who have never played together. The awesome creativity, excitement, and quality always shine through in The Kimmel Center’s informal club-like setting, featuring early warm-up sets by some of the hottest DJs around. And, it’s free!

Who Got The Jazz is a successful jazz/soul/hip-hop fusion series that celebrates master Jazz musicians or soul vocalists work in a live curated jam session style.  The likes of musical legends like John Coltrane, Gil Scott Heron, Lee Morgan, Stevie Wonder & more are honored. The event was originally conceived by Yusuf “Yuie” Muhammad at World Cafe Live, where it ran for a year.

This series, gets its name from the now, classic song, "Jazz [We've Got]," by the groundbreaking hip-hop crew, A Tribe Called Quest. Like much of their second album, “The Low End Theory” this song illustrates ATCQ's talents and interests in digging deep & finding smooth/mellow nuggets to sample and share with the world. As pioneers of Jazz digging, during the 1990s, what is called the golden age of hip-hop, ATCQ should get special attention and props for turning a new generation on to modern Jazz music.

Be our guest. Come by sometime and see who is Sittin’ In.
