​Knoxville Jazz Orchestra presents 21st Century Trombone with Michael Dease”

The Knoxville Jazz Orchestra's 14th anniversary 2013-14 concert season continues on Tuesday, January 21st at 8pm with 21st Century Trombone and Michael Dease. The program will be held at the Square Room on Market Square, located at 4 Market Square, next door to the Tomato Head.

Dease, one of today’s brightest young stars, beautifully illustrates how tradition and innovation can peacefully coexist every time he picks up his horn. Combining soulful warmth with heart-stopping thunder, Dease is widely regarded as a new giant of the trombone. Bassist Christian McBride declared that Michael’s playing should be considered illegal. His jaw-dropping abilities will be on full display as he propels the KJO through a musical panorama combining old and new.

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 $32.00 adult, $15.00 student. Tickets are available in advance at or by visiting Café 4 at 4 Market Square.
