George Tidwell Sextet Live in the Jazz Cave

The Nashville Jazz Workshop is delighted to present longtime Nashville favorite George Tidwell and his Sextet Live in the Jazz Cave Friday, February 8 at 8pm.

Trumpeter George Tidwell has been a mainstay of Nashville's jazz scene. A native of Memphis, he came to Nashville in 1963, and has had a long career as a studio musician, arranger, and of course, jazz musician. Along with Beegie Adair and Denis Solee, he led many acclaimed Nashville groups such as the Part-Time, Big-Time, Be-bop Co-op. It was in these groups that he developed a much-loved book of original arrangements for three horns and rhythm section. Parts of this book have been performed here over the years under the banner of the "NJW All-Stars."

Members of the sextet for this performance will include Denis Solee (saxophone), Roger Bissell (trombone), Lori Mechem (piano), Roger Spencer (bass), and Duffy Jackson (drums). As with other Tidwell-related dates, it will feature his magnificent three-horn book, world-class trumpet playing -- and of course it will swing!

Admission is $25 / $15 students with ID. Tickets will be available for advance purchase on Monday, January 28 at 10AM. They may be purchased online on this page, by phone 24/7 at Brown Paper Tickets (800-838-3006), or during daytime business hours at 615-242-5299.
