From Summer NAMM

Had a great time at the Summer NAMM show last month charting and supporting Steve Wariner with a horn section.  Also some face time for local friends & colleagues  Roland Barber, brother Rahsaan, and Jim Ferguson.  Here’s the photo spread from the Nashville Musician which came out this week.

NJO weekly residency news

Just a quick note that the Nashville Jazz Orchestra is ending its weekly residency at the Commodore Grille tonight!  Put another feather in the cap of “venues that don’t get it.”  Details will emerge, but in the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for a new weekly spot for the NJO soon!


Weekend happenings

It’s an exciting weekend for jazz fans in Nashville.  This Friday April 12th is a sold-out concert of the great Wayne Shorter Quartet with the Nashville Symphony.


If you’re late on Wayne tickets, check out the angelic voice of Cassie Peterson at F. Scott’s on Friday night starting at 7pm.


Saturday April 13th the Contemporary Jazz Series of NJW features my friend and colleague Chris West.


That same Saturday night I’m also leading a quartet at F. Scott’s with Pat Coil, Jonathan Wires, and Chris Brown from 7:30 to 11:30.

Finally on Sunday there are two shows by the super-talented NYC pianist and vocalist Champian Fulton at Nine48jazz.  It’s Champian’s debut in Nashville – click these links to buy tickets, although the early show is just about sold out. Shows are Sunday April 14th at 3:30 and 5:30


Nine48jazz, by the way, has begun a campaign raising money to convert from a house-concert series to a commercial venue.  Check it out and help grow jazz in Nashville.
