About this event

The series continues on Saturday, July 16, with the Joel Frahm Trio, featuring Frahm on tenor saxophone, Dan Loomis on bass, and Ernesto Cervini on drums. For more than 30 years, Frahm lived in New York City, working in jazz clubs, collaborating with other musicians, and honing his craft. He now lives in Nashville, where he continues to play the music he loves. His bold, inventive tenor sound has won fans in the United States and across the world. He has worked alongside Betty Carter, Kenny Barron, Freddy Cole, Dianne Schuur, Kurt Elling, Jane Monheit, Bill Charlap, Brad Mehldau, Matt Wilson, Cyrille Aimee, and many other top artists. He has played as a leader or sideman on more than 100 recordings, including Brad Mehldau's Finding Gabriel, which won a 2020 Grammy Award as Best Jazz Instrumental Album, the Dafnis Prieto Big Band album, Back to the Sunset, winner of a 2019 Grammy, and the 2019 Grammy-nominated album, My Mood Is You, by vocalist Freddy Cole. He has appeared at major jazz festivals and has taught jazz classes around the world. NPR’s Fresh Air commented, “Joel Frahm has a brawny tenor saxophone sound, strong and confident from top to bottom … but his sound is just the start. The old jazz masters said a solo should tell a little story, meaning it should have a sure pace and momentum, interesting developments, maybe a twist or a new episode you didn't see coming. Master storytellers keep us guessing what comes next. Joel Frahm has that knack.”
