About James Benson

“What we play at Columbia Station is different every week. My goal is to respect the music that the jazz greats made for us, while energizing it with what we have learned since then, and what we are experiencing in the present tense. Every musical situation and every night is different…what I try to bring is consistent passion for the music.“  ~James Benson

Since December of 2013, the James Benson Quartet has played every Saturday Night at Columbia Station, one of DC’s top jazz clubs in the heart of Adams Morgan. The band covers jazz standards from the 1930s through 1950s, Bebop and 1960s-era post-Bop, Samba and Bossa Nova, as well as Blues and Funk from a 1970s-era jazz-fusion perspective. James likes to play compositions from his guitar heroes including Wes Montgomery, Pat Martino, and Pat Metheny, as well as horn greats like Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, and Wayne Shorter. It is common for the Quartet to feature guest vocalists and horn players. Check out our Facebook page for upcoming featured artists.
