Snap on 2&4 w/ Rahsaan Barber

On Friday, January 26 a Nashville favorite, saxophonist Rahsaan Barber, returns to the Jazz Cave for a Snap on 2&4 performance.

Rahsaan Barber is in the vanguard of creative young players making their mark on Nashville's contemporary music scene. A native Nashvillian, he was raised in a musical household and, along with his twin brother Roland, was introduced to jazz at an early age. The brothers studied with the distinguished jazz educator Dr. David Baker at Indiana University, and went on to graduate study at the Manhattan School of Music.

Since returning to Nashville from New York, Rahsaan has taught first at Belmont University, and most recently at Tennessee State University. With broad musical interests he maintains a busy performing and touring schedule with artists of many genres. He is a founding member of the Latin jazz band El Movimiento and the funk/hip-hop group The Megaphones, and also leads his own group, Everyday Magic. Rahsaan hosts a radio program on WFSK-FM, serves as Vice President of the Tennessee Jazz and Blues Society, has taught at the Nashville Jazz Workshop, and serves on its Advisory Board.

Rahsaan's recordings include CDs with his brother (as The Barber Brothers Jazz Quintet), and with his bands Everyday Magic, El Movimiento, and the Megaphones. He also founded and leads a record label, Jazz Music City, that has released projects of Bruce Dudley and Imer Santiago as well as Rahsaan's own projects.

There will be two sets starting at 8pm. Admission is $25 / $15 students with ID. Tickets will be available for advance purchase on Monday, January 15 at 10AM. They may be purchased online on this page, by phone 24/7 at Brown Paper Tickets (800-838-3006), or during daytime business hours at 615-242-5299.
