NJW Presents Frank Potenza
The Nashville Jazz Workshop is delighted to present for its first streaming concert of 2021 an evening of solo guitar with L.A.-based jazz guitarist Frank Potenza.Wednesday, February 17 at 7pm CST.
A graduate of Berklee College of Music, Frank has had a long career on the West Coast as an educator, performer, and recording artist. He has served on the faculty at the University of Southern California and full professor and chair of the Studio/Jazz Guitar department from 2006 to 2018. He was a member of the Gene Harris Quartet until Harris’s death in 2000, and has worked with Mose Allison, Joe Diorio, Mundell Lowe, John Pisano, Joe Sample, Bud Shank, Lonnie Smith, and George Van Eps.
Frank is perhaps best known for his association with the late Joe Pass, who was a mentor and friend for 20 years. You can hear this influence in Frank’s solo guitar playing and in his 2013 tribute CD, For Joe, with John Pisano, Jim Hughart, and Colin Bailey.
The concert will be streamed on Eventbrite. Tickets are $10 and are available through Eventbrite.
