TJBS Presents "Sessions at Steinway" w/ Chester Thompson
The Tennessee Jazz Blues Society and Steinway Piano Gallery of Nashville are proud to present a new performance series, Sessions at Steinway.

Sessions at Steinway is modeled after the award-winning series, Inside The Actors's Studio and was conceived by saxophonist and TJBS Vice-President, Rahsaan Barber. It offers audiences the rare chance to to hear unique and personal accounts of life both on and away from the stage. The "sessions" will include short performances and a Q&A segment for audience interaction.
The next in the series will take place Saturday, December 6 at 1:30 pm at the Steinway Piano Gallery, Sidco Drive.

Chester's name is found on lists of the world's greatest drummers. He maintains an active teaching, performing, and touring schedule, and is working on a second CD with his trio (The Chester Thompson Trio, with Joe Davidian, and Michael Rinne).
This event will offer a rare glimpse of the life and career of a world-class musician who has been part of jazz and rock-and-roll history. The audience will also be treated to examples of Chester's drum artistry.
