Knoxville Jazz Orchestra: Jazz is for Lovers with vocalist Dee Daniels

The Knoxville Jazz Orchestra's 13th anniversary 2012-13 concert season continues on Tuesday, February 12th at 8pm with "Jazz dee daniels jazzis for Lovers with vocalist Dee Daniels". The program will be held at the Bijou Theatre at 803 South Gay Street.

Whether accompanying herself at the piano or fronting a trio, big band or symphony, Dee Daniels' musical career is as varied as her four-octave vocal range is thrilling. She is a unique talent who transcends musical borders when she brings her jazz styling, infused with gospel and blues, to the stage. One critic says, "Daniels' voice has a hypnotic quality, delivering an impressive range that gives the romantic songs and verse of 50 years ago new life and raw emotion." In our humble opinion, the songs and verse this critic referred to stand as some of the greatest music ever written. And Dee Daniels has a library full of these songs with orchestrations by John Clayton, one of our favorite big band arrangers.

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.

Tickets for the event are $29.50 adult, $15.00 student. Tickets are available in advance at, by calling 684-1200 or by visiting the Tennessee Theatre Box office.
