Snap on 2&4 w/ Rod McGaha
On Friday, October 25 at 8pm, please join the Nashville Jazz Workshop in welcoming trumpeter Rod McGaha back to the Jazz Cave for the Snap on 2&4 concert series. McGaha is a favorite of Nashville jazz fans and jazz trumpeters across the country for his incredibly expressive and lyrical style of playing. His 2012 Snap on 2&4 with a string quartet was one of the year's most memorable, and we're delighted to have him back - this time with a solid and swinging quintet.
Rod McGaha's bio is a familiar one to local jazz fans. The Chicago native began playing trumpet (cornet, actually) in grade school and dove headlong into jazz while attending college at Northeastern University. Shortly thereafter, he became a student of the legendary Clark Terry. He has gone on to play and tour with many luminaries of jazz, R&B, Gospel and even Country music, including joining for a time the band of yet another legendary figure of jazz, drummer Max Roach. He has recently toured with the great Hall of Fame-inducted songwriter J.D. Souther, and he composes and arranges for his own United For Peace Orchestra, a 24-piece ensemble featuring diverse instrumentation and a genre-spanning repertoire. Rod is also a longstanding faculty member at NJW and serves on our Advisory Board.
For this special Snap on 2&4 appearance, the quintet will include several of the area's finest jazz players: Don Aliquo (saxophone), Jody Nardone (piano), Jerry Navarro (bass), and Nioshi Jackson (drums).
The band will play two sets, beginning at 8pm, and admission is $20 for adults / $10 Students with ID.
Admission is $20 / $10 high school and college students with ID.
