Also performing that evening are Gretchen Parlato and Alan Hampton. Parlato's Live in NYC project was nominated for a 2015 Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Performance. 

Grammy nominated signer, songwriter, Eric Roberson comes to Jazzanooga Festival 2015 in partnership with Jam Session Nights. Roberson's music is influenced by soul, rhythm and blues, house, hip-hop, jazz, rock and more.

Their dynamic, innovative programs have served over 255,000 young people nationwide in partnership with many of America's most prominent performing arts presenters and have received unanimous praise from students, teachers, parents, the media and arts professionals alike. JazzReach will return to Chattanooga in April for a series of performances for youth and families.
