NJW Presents Chester Thompson
Join us on Friday, May 3 at 8pm as the Nashville Jazz Workshop welcomes back master drummer Chester Thompson to the Jazz Cave.
Nashville is incredibly fortunate to have a musician of Chester Thompson's caliber. The Jazz Workshop is especially fortunate to have the drummer as a faculty member and artist! With three decades of performing and recording under his belt, Chester has influenced countless musicians in the fields of jazz, pop, rock, and gospel. Aside from a stint with Weather Report, Chester's resume also includes tours with Frank Zappa, Genesis, and Phil Collins.
Chester's two recent trio CDs have received critical acclaim and nationwide exposure. "Simpler Times" was released in 2015 and went to #5 on the national Jazz Charts; and "Approved" was released in 2013. A new CD, "Steppin," with former Weather Report bandmate Alphonso Johnson, is about to be released.
The show is on Friday, May 3. There will be two sets, beginning at 8pm. Tickets will be $25 for adults / $15 high school and college students with ID.
