About This Event

ONE SHOW: 7:30pm

Doug Beavers with the South Mountain CC Latin Jazz Band

“I’m very excited to bring the music from my new album Luna to the city of Phoenix and The Nash!  Audiences will be able to enjoy this music, the recipient of a Doris Duke Foundation grant, done up freshly for a Salsa big band. Prepare to be blown away!”
-Doug Beavers

2019 GRAMMY® Winner (Producer, Spanish Harlem Orchestra) Doug Beavers has been hailed by critics and fellow musicians as a leading trombonist of his generation and “an arranger of the first-class” (Harvey Siders, JazzTimes).  After moving to New York and receiving his Master’s Degree in Composition from the Manhattan School of Music in 2002, he was catapulted to international significance when he was discovered by NEA Jazz Master Eddie Palmieri to transcribe and arrange the complete repertoire from his historic La Perfecta group of the 1960s.  He won his first Grammy® Award with Palmieri for Listen Here in 2006, an album which featured such jazz leaders as Michael Brecker, Nicholas Payton, Christian McBride, and John Scofield.

Doug Beavers has since went on to perform, arrange and record for Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Mingus Big Band, Ruben Blades, Típica ’73, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Paul Simon, Christian McBride and countless others.  As a leader, he’s recorded five critically acclaimed albums; his most recent release, Art of the Arrangement (Artistshare, 2017), earned a nomination for the 60th Annual Grammy® Awards.
