Doc Cheatham's Life in Jazz Part I of II

Genre: 
Date: 
Thursday, November 17, 2011 - 6:00pm

Join us as we pay tribute to Doc Cheatham, a trumpeter, singer, and bandleader who abandoned his family's plan to become a pharmacist to create a Jazz scene in his hometown of Nashville, Tennessee where there was previously no Jazz music at all. Cheatham has played in numerous famous bands such as those of Albert Wynn, Ma Rainey, the bands of Bobby Lee and Wilber de Paris. He also performed a short stint with Chick Webb and Sam Wooding's band. Stay tuned next week for part two!
