Nate Najar with Stacey Kent and Jim Tomlinson - A Special Evening of Jazz at The Palladium on July 29, 2015

Jazz at The Palladium with Nate Najar, 
Stacey Kent and Jim Tomlinson

It’s a jazz trio like no other! Guitarist Nate Najar, vocalist Stacey Kent and saxophonist Jim Tomlinson come together for one very special night, Wednesday, July 29, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. at the Palladium Theater, 253 5th Ave N, St Petersburg, FL 33701. It’s part of the “Mahaffey On The Move” series.

Nate Najar is one of the few contemporary musicians playing jazz on the classical guitar. In 2008, he was selected to represent Charlie Byrd in a 10-day festival at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., celebrating the history of jazz. His Candid Records release Blues For Night People - The Nate Najar Trio Remembers Charlie Byrd introduced him to the international stage, including performances at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club and the 2013 London Jazz Festival.

A masterful interpreter of Brazilian samba and bossa nova music, Grammy-nominated Stacey Kent is able to transcend genre and national boundaries with an ease that few other artists can. Her Breakfast on the Morning Tram (2007) received platinum album certification in France. “As she threw back her head and crooned softly,” raved the New York Times in a concert review, “you had the sense of a woman with nothing to protect, living in the moment and dreaming out loud.” Kent’s latest, acclaimed release is The Changing Lights.

Tenor saxophonist Jim Tomlinson has been called the Stan Getz to Stacey Kent’s Astrud Gilberto. As well as arranging and producing his wife’s recordings, the gifted composer has made three albums as a duet with her; The Lyric was named Album of the Year at the BBC Jazz Awards in 2006

Tickets to this show, priced at $25, may be purchased online at, charged by phone at (727)893-7832 or in person at The Mahaffey Theater Box Office. The Mahaffey Box Office is open 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday or at least 90 minutes prior to any ticketed event. There are no added charges ever on tickets purchased directly from The Mahaffey Theater.
