Jovan Quallo

The Nashville Jazz Workshop is delighted to welcome saxophonist Jovan Quallo to the Jazz Cave to kick off 2019’s performance series Friday, January 18 at 8pm.

Originally from Boston, MA, Jovan Quallo graduated from MTSU with a degree in music education in 2013 and now calls Nashville home. Since college he’s become an accomplished, in-demand saxophonist in Nashville’s diverse music scene.

Jovan’s performing career has taken him across the U.S., Central America, Asia, and Europe. He has performed or toured with nationally acclaimed artists such as Jake Owen, Meghan Trainor, Cece Winans, MercyMe, Brett Eldredge, Reba McIntyre, Dan + Shay, Martina McBride, Jeff Coffin, Larry Carlton, Boyz II Men, Charlie Wilson, Ronnie Milsap, Allen Stone, Irma Thomas, Lee Fields, Eric Krasno, Alecia Chakour, The Shadowboxers, and many others.

Jovan is also a member of the Nashville Jazz Orchestra, the Music City Big Band, and the Tennessee Jazz Collective.

Jovan has recorded with the likes of Mike Farris, Jake Owen, and Keb’ Mo’ and has played on several major recordings, including Owen’s “American Love” and “Greatest Hits” and Keb’ Mo’s triple Grammy nominee “Blues Americana” and Grammy winner “Taj Mo.”

An advocate of music education, Jovan maintains his own private woodwind studio of 35+ middle and high school students in Nashville and the surrounding areas.
