The Knoxville Jazz Orchestra’s concert season continues at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 23, with “An Evening with Bill Frisell” at The Mill and Mine, 227 West Depot Ave.
In 2015, legendary guitarist Bill Frisell teamed up with Michael Gibbs, one of his former Berklee College of Music professors, and the famed NDR jazz orchestra of Germany to produce a full-length recording for big band.
According to the KJO, the fruits of that recording will be performed live in the U.S. for the first time at concert, presented by the law firm Merchant and Gould.
The Knoxville Jazz Orchestra is a 17-piece big band comprised of professional musicians from across the region. Since its inception in 1999, the orchestra has performed dozens of concerts in East Tennessee, appeared on major jazz festivals in Europe, performed and recorded with internationally acclaimed guest artists, and released four critically acclaimed CD recordings.
