Add to Calendar 2017-06-24 6:30 pm 2017-06-24 Tjbs Great Albums Concert For June - Smoking' At The Half Note at Rudy's Jazz Room The next concert in the TJBS Great Albums Concert Series is Saturday, June 24, 6:30 and 8:30 pm. The performance will celebrate the classic Wes Montgomery recording, Smokin' at the Half Note. The featured artist will be guitarist James DaSilva.

This concert will be the second edition at the newly-opened Rudy's Jazz Room, at 809 Gleaves Street in the Gulch. We're excited to continue this partnership with Rudy's, and think this will be a great venue for our members and friends to enjoy great jazz performance.

Tickets will be $15 for TJBS members and students, $20 for non-members. Tickets are on sale through Brown Paper Tickets. Seats for both shows will be General Admission (no reserved seating). Rudy's has a full bar and restaurant, so unlike our concerts in the Jazz Cave, this event will not be BYOB.

Smokin' at the Half Note was the second recorded collaboration between Wes Montgomery and the Wynton Kelly Trio, released in 1965. The album combined Wes with the Miles Davis rhythm section from 1959-1963 of Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb. The album's versions of "Unit 7" and "Four on Six" helped to establish these songs as jazz standards. The album is considered one of Montgomery's finest.

James DaSilva is one the most accomplished young guitarists of his generation. Equally at home in contemporary jazz and bebop and with formidable chops, James is the ideal leader for this performance!

ABOUT THE SERIES

The Great Albums Concert Series shows the incredible talent of Nashville's jazz and blues artists with performances of the greatest jazz and blues albums in history. The series features rare, often first-time collaborations between Music City's most celebrated singers and instrumentalists, tackling live performances of works by artists such as Nancy Wilson, Cannonball Adderley, John Coltrane, Ella Fitzgerald, and Louis Armstrong. Audiences will leave with new knowledge and appreciation of a landmark album, and will understand the greatness of our own artists, as they "step into the shoes" of the most historic and engaging musical artists of the 20th century.

The Tennessee Jazz & Blues Society is a nonprofit organization with a 40-year history of supporting and promoting jazz and blues in the area. With an acclaimed website and newsletter along with concert productions, the TJBS is active in "connecting, supporting, and serving jazz and blues."
