The second concert in the NXT GEN series will feature bandleaders Margherita Fava and Sam Adams. Adams will open the evening with a set dedicated to Knoxville’s very own jazz legend, the great Donald Brown. This set will feature arrangements of Brown’s music as well as Adams’ original compositions inspired by and dedicated to Mr. Brown. The night will continue with Margherita Fava’s tribute to late great composer and trumpeter Roy Hargrove, who’s musical voice influenced the sound of popular music from the 1990s onward. Don’t miss this opportunity to see two up-and-coming Knoxville based pianist-composers pay homage to the musical innovators who are impacting the NXT GEN!
This show takes place October 23, 2022 at 7:30 PM at the Old City Performing Arts Center in Downtown Knoxville. (Doors open at 7:00).
