"Jazz on the Move

A Tribute to The Weather Report featuring drummer Chester Thompson

Sunday, September 16
3:00 p.m. Steve and Judy Turner Recital Hall

Nashville Jazz Workshop and Blair present this special edition of NJW's Jazz on the Move lecture and performance featuring legendary jazz drummer Chester Thompson. Thompson was a touring drummer with Genesis for thirty years, also working extensively with Phil Collins, Frank Zappa, Steve Hackett, and many more. But at this lecture and concert, Thompson's jazz work is front and center,as Thompson speaks about his time in the 70's as a member of the seminal free jazz ensemble The Weather Report. Thompson and an assortment of Nashville's finest jazz players will pay musical tribute to The Weather Report, as well. The history of jazz, in story and song!"

"The Weather Report"? Just love those press release copy writers!

Anyway, I saw Chester's talk and show three years ago at Belmont and it was phenomenal! He and his band did a great Black Market. He even did Q&A after, telling about his FZ experiences. Not to be missed.

Might even attempt clearing a path to the extra bedroom, and unload the sofas, if anyone is interested.

I thought he might be in jail and this was a concert to free him.

Good to hear that it's not!

That's what I was thinking when I saw the title of the thread. Diseased minds think alike. Probably a "Free Roy Estrada" concert would make more sense but I'm not sure if he has many sympathizers at this point.
