Snap on 2&4 w/ Chester Thompson
Join us on Friday, December 8 for the final Snap on 2&4 of 2017. This timewe welcome 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.
Joining Chester for this performance will be Lori Mechem (piano), Roger Spencer (bass), and Rod McGaha (trumpet).
There will be two sets beginning at 8:00 pm in the Jazz Cave at the Workshop. Tickets will go on sale Monday, November 27 at 10am, and are $25 ($15 for high school and college students).
