Tennessee Jazz & Blues Society says
Bassist and vocalist Jim Ferguson is the guest artist at the next installment of the TJBS Sessions at Steinway presentation, Saturday, November 7, 1:30pm. Jim, a Nashville resident since 1981, has had a long and distinguished recording and performing career and has appeared with many of the greats in jazz and popular music.

Host and interviewer for the session will be guitarist Lindsey Miller. Providing the accompaniment will be pianist Joe Davidian and drummer Josh Hunt.

The performance takes place at 1:30pm at the Steinway Piano Gallery of Nashville, 4285 Sidco Dr. Admission is $15, $10 for TJBS members and students. Advance tickets are available from Brown Paper Tickets.

Jim Ferguson has had a long and colorful career. A Nashville resident since receiving a Master of Jazz Studies degree from the University of South Carolina in 1981, he interrupted his academic studies a number times for doses or real-world experience. These included a stint with the New Christy Minstrels and times in New York, where his mentors included bassists Chuck Israels and Michael Moore. Since Jim's move to Nashville, the list of artists with whom he's played or recorded is too long to detail, but for starters includes Teddy Wilson, Mose Alison, Phineas Newborn, Jr., Jimmy Raney, Martin Taylor, and Marion McPartland. In 1990 Jim began touring and recording with singer Crystal Gayle, working as singer, vocal arranger, and bassist.

Jim's recording projects include two CD's as a leader, Deep Summer Music and Not Just Another Pretty Bass, as well as a duo project, Haunted Heart, with guitarist Mundell Lowe. Jim's music style is distinctive for the deep sonority and lyricism of his bass playing, and his relaxed tenor vocals. Patrons will be treated to an ample measure of both at the Steinway session.

Sessions at Steinway is modeled after the award-winning series Inside the Actors’s Studio, and was conceived by saxophonist and TJBS Vice-President, Rahsaan Barber. It offers audiences the rare chance to hear unique and personal accounts of life both on and away from the stage. The “sessions” will include short performances and a Q&A segment for audience interaction.
