The city’s indie rock, hip-hop and club music scenes garner plenty of national press, and deservedly so. But jazz in Baltimore doesn’t seem to get as much love. With such luminaries as Cab Calloway, Cyrus Chestnut, Chick Webb, Eubie Blake and Ella Fitzgerald calling Baltimore home at one point or another, and the Peabody Institute continuing to draw top young talent, the city’s jazz bona fides are well established.

On Sunday, one of the city’s premiere venues for jazz, An die Musik, will host what it is dubbing Baltimore’s First Black Composers Forum. Tim Green (saxophone), P.J. Morgan (piano), Herman Burney (bass) and Eric Kennedy (drums) will all take part in a Q&A “honoring the creators/creation of the music that is our heritage,” according to a Facebook page for the event.

After that, the group will perform a concert the venue is calling an “intimate journey from inspiration to legacy.”

6:30 p.m., An die Musik, 409 N. Charles St., (410) 385-2638, andiemusiklive.com, $15 in advance, $18 at the door, $10 for students with ID.
