Nashville Jazz Orchestra Celebrates Milestones Featuring Christina Watson - 12/26Tuesday, December 26 2017 6:00pm Doors / 7:00pm Start / Ends 9:00pm (Estimated End Time)
at City Winery Nashville
Please join us as we celebrate several milestones for the Nashville Jazz Orchestra. Jim Williamson’s 70th Birthday, and 20 Years as the NJO Director! The NJO will perform selections from their 5 Albums, as well as several new songs to be released in 2018. The NJO will be joined by very special guest vocalist Christina Watson.
The Nashville Jazz Orchestra preserves, advances, and promotes big band jazz appreciation to our children and our communities through live performances, workshops, and quality recordings.
“The Nashville Jazz Orchestra celebrates a vital but often overlooked part of the improvisational strain, the large group tradition. Jim Williamson and his comrades are a first-rate unit comfortable navigating not only familiar show tunes and pre-rock canon, but the more ambitious hard bop, blues and outside/avant garde compositions from the music’s more edgy wing.”
