Jazz at Parnassus this Saturday

Standard

I received this email today, be there or be….

I’m absolutely delighted to be presenting “Jazz by the Book: The Music of Peggy Lee” with Lori Mechem and Roger Spencer.  This special presentation will be this Saturday, March 24th, at Parnassus Books in Nashville from 4-5pm.  It’s free, open to the public and Parnassus will have lots of great Peggy Lee books, DVDs and music for you to purchase, if you are so moved.

This event is special to me for many reasons. First of all, its a series in conjunction with the Nashville Jazz Workshop. Secondly, I get to play with two of my favorite musicians and lastly, it’s a chance to support one of Nashville’s newest treasures.  For those of you who are not familiar, Parnassus Books is an independent bookstore located in Nashville, TN. It was started by best-selling author Ann Patchett and publishing veteran Karen Hayes.  It happens to be run by one of my favorite people in Nashville, Mary Grey James.  For Mary Grey, I’ll do just about anything!  So, it’s a privilege and honor to be performing in such a special venue.

Oh, and if you haven’t seen Ann Patchett’s visit to Stephen Colbert, it’s a must-see. Ann is my new hero! (skip to 15:14 and you’ll be at the start of Ann’s interview)

Keep Swingin’
