Set One: Margherita Fava's TATATU


Italian pianist Margherita Fava and her quartet will present music from her debut album “TATATU.” The title is a reference to one of Fava’s first sentences as a child and roughly translates as “I can do it by myself.” The project is self-produced from top to bottom and features a variety of original compositions and arrangements that reflect her unique perspective on the music.


Set Two: Bernell Jones Project


Saxophonist/keyboardist Bernell Jones II is a native of Memphis, TN. He graduated from the Jazz Studies program at UTK in 2020, and moved to New York City where he has quickly made a name for himself. Jones has performed with artists as diverse as singer-songwriter Lauryn Hill, rapper Wyclef Jean and trumpeter Philip Harper.


Bernell will present a set of his own music which represents a balance between the Big Apple’s fabled jazz presence and the sound of Memphis’ beloved soul music.
