Our Friday, January 22 Snap on 2&4 performance features saxophonist Rahsaan Barber.

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 distinguishedjazz 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. His ensembles always include the finest players in town, so please check back for updated information, and get your tickets early!
