Jazz of Music City … 1 Album Release Party 

When: Thu., July 21, 7 p.m. 2011
Price: Free
The rise of Nashville’s rock scene over the last decade has pretty much exploded the notion that Nashville is just a country music town, but there’s also a considerable jazz scene, including many musicians who pay their bills touring with country acts but indulge their first love on the side. Jazz of Music City … 1 features compositions by 10 Nashville jazzers, and ranges from smooth jazz and Latin funk to classic soul-jazz and contemporary big band. Our favorite cuts: Moe Denham’s slinky organ trio number “Dyna-Moe,” guitarist Denny Jiosa’s upbeat “East of Montgomery” and trumpeter Jim Williamson’s “Legacy,” a six-plus-minute mini-symphony that features Williamson’s Nashville Jazz Orchestra weaving big band, bebop and moody crime jazz into a stunning film soundtrack in search of a movie. (See the Critics’ Pick on Tuesday’s Nashville Jazz Orchestra performance on p. 27.) Belmont Mansion hosts the album release party, featuring live jazz and refreshments. Free and open to the public.
