George Tidwell Sextet

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!
