Nashville Jazz Workshop “Jazzmania”
Jazzmania is the Nashville Jazz Workshop’s Annual Jazz Party and Fundraiser. All proceeds benefit the Nashville Jazz Workshop, and go to support the Workshop’s mission of enriching people’s lives through classes, performances, and special events for the community.
Jazzmania is the Jazz Party of the Year, with great live jazz from some of the city’s finest musicians.
This year’s artist lineup is sensational! Headlining the bill is the Gerald Clayton Quartet. The son of legendary bassist John Clayton, Gerald Clayton has already carved a niche for himself at the top ranks of jazz piano. A Grammy-nominated instrumentalist and composer, Clayton has recorded and toured with his own groups and with such jazz greats as Charles Lloyd, Terrell Stafford, Diana Krall, the Clayton Brothers, and many more. Clayton’s previous visit to Nashville in 2018 was a stunning solo piano concert at Belmont University.
Jazzmania also includes a live and silent auction, with unique and desirable items. The Silent Auction features the Small Works art collection along with many dining and entertainment packages and unique experiences. The Live Auction features fabulous items and packages, including vacation packages, special dinner and concert experiences, and beautiful original artwork. Stay tuned for details!
Another special element of Jazzmania is the the NJW Heritage Award, presented annually to a person who has made major contributions to the jazz community over an extended time. Congratulations to last year’s winner, Jeff Coffin!
Please join us on October 19 for great music, food, and more!
