The Knoxville Museum of Art will continue its spring series of Alive After Five, premiering with release party for the new CD “Trio Life” by Boling, Brown & Holloway on April 20, from 6:00 to 8:30 pm.
The album documents explorations in jazz that have been evolving since 1982, when these University of Tennessee professors – Mark Boling (guitar), Keith Brown (drums) and Rusty Holloway (bass) – began playing together.
Each performer’s background in jazz, rock, R&B, blues, country, and pop make this album an extraordinary example of their nearly 30 years of music-making. In “Trio Life”, Boling, Brown & Holloway play original compositions by Boling, along with jazz standards, Wayne Shorter compositions, and even a cover by Norah Jones. Trio Life was recorded in Knoxville, TN, at AMG Studios and will be released on the MaBo label.
Alive After Five is a unique live music series presented on thirty or more Fridays per year in four seasonal series. The programs take place in the smoke-free, casually elegant setting of the Great Hall in the Knoxville Museum of Art. There is a live band on stage, seating at tables, two cash bars, food from area restaurants, free freshly popped popcorn, free parking, and a licensed therapeutic masseuse available. Audience members can enjoy listening to music, dancing, and browsing the museum’s art galleries.
Admission is $9 for general admission and $5 for museum members and college students with ID. Ages 17 and under are admitted free. Alive After Five is sponsored by Cherokee Distributing Company, East Tennessee PBS, Metro Pulse, WDVX-89.9FM, and WhatsHotKnox.com.
