The Beegie Adair Trio April 2016 says
NJW is delighted to announce the return of monthly appearances by one of Nashville's true musical treasures - the Beegie Adair Trio! The Trio returns to the Jazz Cave on Saturday, April 16, at 7 PM.

This appearance will feature special guest George Tidwell on trumpet! George is an icon of Nashville's jazz scene and a longtime collaborator and friend of Beegie's. Don't miss their onstage chemistry in person!

This season's appearances of the Beegie Adair Trio are sponsored by our good friends at the Steinway Piano Gallery of Nashville.

Beegie Adair has been an important part of Nashville's musical fabric for more than 40 years. She was a sought after studio musician in the late 60's and early 70's, and was a session musician working on WSM-TV and the Johnny Cash Show from '69-'71. She has accompanied many legendary performers in many different genres.

Awarded as a 2013 "Jazz Hero" by the Jazz Journalist Association, Beegie is one of the most accomplished and highly regarded musicians in Music City. Her recordings are literally among the highest selling jazz albums in the world, and she was the highest selling jazz artist in Japan in 2010 - with three albums in Sound Scan's top 10. The trio's live recording The Real Thing was listed as #26 in JazzWeek's top 100 recordings of 2012. The trio's just-released recording, Too Marvelous for Words, features Don Aliquo on saxophone, and is the latest of 36 CD's the trio has recorded together!

Roger Spencer is the bassist of the trio. In addition to being a founder and director of the Nashville Jazz Workshop, he has worked with a host of the finest musicians in jazz. One of Nashville's most widely respected players, he is also on the faculty of Vanderbilt's Blair School of Music.

Legendary drummer Chester Thompson returns to fill the drum seat for the April 16 event.
