The Knoxville Jazz Orchestra's 2017-18 concert season begins Tuesday, Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. with "Tribute to Sarah Vaughan Featuring Deborah Brown." The program is held at The Mill and Mine.

Join the KJO and vocalist Deborah Brown as they pay tribute to one of the most beloved artists of the 20th century, Sarah Vaughan. Dubbed "The Divine One" and "Sassy," Vaughan's interpretations of popular songs helped canonize what is now known as the Great American Songbook. Brown might well be the heir-apparent to Vaughan, possessing a flawless technique, incredible range of expression, masterful sense of swing and effortless command of subtle harmony. A native of Kansas City, she brings with her a wealth of experience, expertise and exciting arrangements of classic songs.

The Knoxville Jazz Orchestra is a 17-piece big band comprised of professional musicians from across the region. Since its inception in 1999, the orchestra has performed dozens of concerts in East Tennessee, appeared on major jazz festivals in Europe, performed and recorded with internationally acclaimed guest artists, and released four critically acclaimed CD recordings.

Tickets for the event are $36.50 adult, $15.00 student. Tickets are available in advance at
