Jazz From Home: David Rodgers
This live event is past, but you can still watch the recorded stream: Watch the show here.
Wednesday, July 1 at 7pm join us for “Jazz From Home,” a curated series of streaming live performances from some of the city’s finest jazz artists. This week features pianist David Rodgers.
During this uncertain time, we have temporarily suspended our in-person programming and turned to delivering online classes and streamed performances. While this allows us to continue bringing you great jazz, revenue from these virtual activities is not enough to pay our bills and we need additional support from our community of supporters.
All donations for the Wednesday streams go directly to the artists, who need your support. Please contribute to David’s Venmo @DavidRodgers
California native David Rodgers is one of the most exciting talents in Nashville’s jazz scene today. Currently an active member of Keb’ Mo’s band as keyboardist, he has also recorded on numerous records including Keb’s Grammy-winning Oklahoma (2019). He has toured and performed worldwide at the Montreux Jazz Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival, and the Playboy Jazz Festival, among many others. David holds a Bachelor of Music degree from Vanderbilt University’s Blair School of Music where he pursued both classical and jazz piano performance and holds a Master of Music degree from Belmont University where he studied commercial composition.
His compositions have been performed and recorded internationally, including guest appearances at the 2018 Jazz Education Network’s Young Composers Showcase where the U.S. Airmen of Note played his winning big band composition, as well as in Canada where he was invited as a guest artist to the Banff Centre’s International Workshop in Jazz & Creative Music. In addition to being an active Korg-endorsed artist, he was also a finalist for ROLI’s first-ever International Next Awards for which he was invited to London to perform as a soloist.
He has released two albums as a leader: his 2017 genre-bending, debut project Songs For A Generation; as well as his 2019 album, Doorways.
