Jazz Lunch features top brass

The next concert in the Knoxville Jazz Lunch series will feature “Top Brass with Thomas Heflin & Mitch Butler.” The event will take place on Wednesday, February 1, 2017 from noon to 1 p.m. at The Square Room, located in Market Square in downtown Knoxville.

Though sometimes overlooked, the quintet with a front line of trumpet and trombone has a rich history in straight ahead jazz. Giants like Clark Terry & Bob Brookmeyer, Woody Shaw & Steve Turre, JJ Johnson and Nat Adderley, et al, left behind an enormous body of work.

For this special concert, trumpeter Thomas Heflin (a former KJO member) and trombonist Mitch Butler team up to pay tribute to the great masters of brass who pioneered this exciting sound. Keith Brown (piano), Tommy Sauter (bass), and Kenneth Brown (drums) will join Heflin and Butler for this special jazz lunch concert.

Admission to the concert is $15 and includes a lunch buffet served up by Café 4. Tickets are available online at http://www.knoxjazz.org or by visiting Café 4 in person prior to the show.

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.
