Snap on 2&4 w/ Christina Watson
Saturday, August 18, please join us in welcoming popular vocalist Christina Watson back to the Jazz Cave for Snap on 2&4.
Originally from southeastern Kentucky, Christina moved to Nashville in 2001 after graduating Magna Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music in Boston. Since her arrival in Music City, her versatile voice and love of all cultures have gained her entry into a wide array of musical situations, including appearances at various jazz festivals and at numerous venues in the US, France, Belgium and Sweden. She has released three CD's as a leader - 2004's All About Love, 2008's critically acclaimed A Flower Truly Blue, and in 2014, Passage. Christina also sings soprano in the Nashville based vocal jazz quartet 3rd Coast Vocals.
Christina is Vocal Jazz Professor at Vanderbilt University's Blair School of Music, where she directs the Blair Jazz Choir and teaches private jazz voice lessons. She is a frequent guest vocalist with the Nashville Jazz Orchestra, the big band with which she has recorded two albums. Christina also leads her own a cappella women's group, the Nashville Belles, which performs locally to benefit a different charity each year.
Joining Christina for the August 18 performance will be an all-star band composed of Lori Mechem (piano), Roger Spencer (bass), Jeff Coffin (saxophone), and Duffy Jackson (drums).
