Greg Tardy at Square Room Knoxville

The next concert featuring the music of Greg Tardy in the Jazz Lunch series will take place on Wednesday, March 4, 2015 from noon to 1 p.m. at the Square Room in Knoxville.


Saxophonist Greg Tardy is undoubtedly one of the great tenor saxophonists and composers of his generation. He has recorded dozens of albums, worked as a sideman with the likes of Elvin Jones, Tom Harrell, Bill Frisell, and Dave Douglas and appeared on major jazz festivals around the globe. He also happens to call Knoxville home. Although Tardy does perform regularly around Knoxville, he very rarely performs his own music with his own band, so this is a rare treat.

The Square Room is a new, state-of-the-art performance venue in downtown Knoxville, TN in the Historic Market Square district. It is housed in the rear of the 4 Market Square Building along with its counterpart Café 4, a full-service restaurant and coffee bar.

Admission to the concert is $15 at the door and includes a lunch buffet served up by Café 4.
