Nashville Jazz Workshop says
Please join us as we welcome back to the NJW Jazz Cave trombonist Roland Barber as he brings an all-new sound to the NJW stage in our next Snap on 2&4, Friday, June 10 from 8-10pm.

Backing Roland's vocals and brass playing, this ensemble features Charles Treadway on jazz organ, Pat Bergeson, guitar, David "Smitty" Smith, drums, Rahsaan Barber, saxophones, and Courtney Mosley on the tuba/sousaphone.

Roland describes this show of this as a "righteous experiment in Jazz-Americana" - drawing water from many wells of our musical landscape - including the brass band sound of New Orleans, the soulful jazz organ playing of Jimmy Smith and Shirley Scott, the deep south trod of the blues, and the sincere, heartfelt and emotive thread that bridges both soul and folk music."

Roland Barber has performed with an impressively diverse and world class list of musicians, including Aretha Franklin, Victor Wooten, Christian McBride, the Grammy-Award-Winning New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, Take 6, Lauryn Hill, Stefon Harris, Manny Oquendo y Libre, Chaka Khan, Wynton Marsalis and the JLCO, the Duke Ellington Orchestra, and the NBC Saturday Night Live Band. Roland has performed in venues such as Carnegie Hall, Birdland, the Blue Note, Lincoln Center, the Copacabana, and Madison Square Garden. He has also appeared on television, including MTV's "Making the Band".

Roland is also quite active as a teacher and educator of musicians from all walks of life. He has taught private study of trombone, jazz history, big band, and jazz improvisation in Manhattan School of Music’s Pre-College Program for the NYC area’s talented youngsters. Roland proudly teaches Nashville's youth as a part of the Nashville Symphony's "One Note, One Neighborhood" program - a partnership between the Nashville Symphony and W. O. Smith Community School of Music - and he is also on faculty here at the Nashville Jazz Workshop. Also, Roland has presented master classes, lessons and lectures to audiences from the very young to high school and collegiate levels.

Roland Barber is also an esteemed composer and arranger. He was awarded a New Works Jazz Grant from Chamber Music America, which led to the writing and Lincoln Center premier of his suite, "Songs of the Village", performed by his quintet.
There will be two sets beginning at 8:00 pm in the Jazz Cave at the Workshop.

Tickets are $25 ($15 for high school and college students). Advance purchase is strongly recommended:
