On Friday, April 7 the Nashville Jazz Workshop presents a Snap on 2&4 performance with saxophonist Don Aliquo and an all-star backing band!
Don Aliquo is known as one of the top saxophonists and jazz educators in the region. He is sought out as a front line sideman by some of the most renowned bandleaders in all of jazz, and is a formidable leader himself, with several CD’s out under his own name and regular appearances in Nashville, as well as New York and other cities.
Joining Aliquo for this performance will be an entire band of esteemed educators and world class musicians:
Clay Jenkins is one of the most sought after jazz trumpeters in the country today. In addition to a touring and clinic schedule, he is a professor at the University of Rochester’s prestigious Eastman School of music. Steve Kovalcheck is a guitarist and composer originally from right here in Nashville. Now living in Colorado, he is active performing throughout Northern Colorado and the Denver area. Kovalcheck is a member of the Jazz Studies faculty at the University of Northern Colorado. Bassist Jonathan Wires is a highly respected Nashville composer and musician with hundreds of original compositions to his credit. A regular on the stage at the Nashville Jazz Workshop, he also teaches at both MTSU and Nashville State Community College. Last, but not least, Nashville fan favorite and expatriate Jim White returns to NJW on drums. Jim is also a member of the UNC Jazz Studies faculty and a nationally renowned musician. White, Kovalcheck, Jenkins, and Aliquo also perform together as part of the group 7 on 7.
