Dates and Times:
February 23, 3:00PM-4:00PM
The Nashville Jazz Workshop and the Frist Center for the Visual Arts announce the eighth season of the popular jazz performance and education series, Jazz on the Move. Each installment features a lecture and performance highlighting a major figure or period in jazz history. Presented by Nashville’s top jazz artist/educators, the series offers audiences world class music as well as an opportunity to learn more about jazz.

February 23 - Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers - Presented by Marcus Finnie

Arthur "Art" Blakey was an American Grammy Award-winning jazz drummer and bandleader. Along with Kenny Clarke and Max Roach, he was one of the inventors of the modern bebop style of drumming.

For more than 30 years his band, Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, was a training ground for generations of young jazz players who "graduated" to become influential performers in their own rights. Art Blakey was elected to the Jazz Hall of Fame (1982), the Grammy Hall of Fame (2001), and received the National Recording Academy's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005.

The afternoon's program will be presented by renowned Nashville drummer Marcus Finnie. Besides leading his own group, Marcus has performed with a host of artists in a number of musical genres, including India Arie, Earl Klugh, Aaron Neville, Lady Antebellum, Larry Carlton, and Billy Preston.

This year's series is presented with support from Caterpillar Financial Services, Peter and Anne Neff, and the Frist Foundation.

The programs take place on a series of Sunday afternoons, and are free and open to the public. All performances are at 3:00 pm in the auditorium at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, 919 Broadway, Nashville, Tenn.
