NJW Presents Rod McGaha
On Friday, April 12 at 8pm, please join the Nashville Jazz Workshop in welcoming trumpeter Rod McGaha back to the Jazz Cave. McGaha is a favorite of Nashville jazz fans and jazz trumpeters across the country for his expressive and lyrical style of playing.
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.
The performance starts at 8pm. Doors open at 7:15. Prior to the concert, at 6pm, Rod will host a reception to mark the opening of his art show in the gallery at NJW. Stay tuned for details about the art show!
The show is on Friday, April 12. There will be two sets, beginning at 8pm. Tickets will be $25 for adults / $15 high school and college students with ID. They will be available for advance purchase on Monday, April 1 at 10AM. Tickets may be purchased online, by phone 24/7 at Brown Paper Tickets (800-838-3006), or during daytime business hours at 615-242-5299.
