On Saturday, September 20, the Nashville Jazz Workshop will host the next monthly appearance by one of Nashville's true musical treasures - the Beegie Adair Trio!
Beegie Adair has been an important part of Nashville's musical fabric for more than 40 years. She was a sought after studio musician in the late 60's and early 70's, and was a session musician working on WSM-TV and the Johnny Cash Show from '69-'71. She has accompanied many legendary performers in many different genres.
Recently awarded as a 2013 "Jazz Hero" by the Jazz Journalist Association, Beegie is one of the most accomplished and highly regarded musicians in Music City. Her recordings are literally among the highest selling jazz albums in the world, and she was the highest selling jazz artist in Japan in 2010 - with three albums in Sound Scan's top 10. The trio's live recording The Real Thing was listed as #26 in JazzWeek's top 100 recordings of 2012. It is the latest of 35 CD's the trio has recorded together!

Roger Spencer is the bassist of the trio. In addition to being a founder and director of the Nashville Jazz Workshop, he has worked with a host of the finest musicians in jazz. One of Nashville's most widely respected players, he is also on the faculty of Vanderbilt's Blair School of Music.
Drummer Chris Brown has been one of Nashville's most sought after drummers since moving here in 1992. In addition to session work and playing with Beegie, Chris tours regularly with bluegrass mandolin star Sam Bush, which he will be doing on Sept. 20! Joining Beegie and Roger for this show will be the marvelous drummer, Marcus Finnie.
