Nimrod Speaks
Jazz Bridge in Cheltenham! presents bassist Nimrod Speaks, appearing at the Cheltenham Center for the Arts—439 Ashbourne Road in Cheltenham—on Wednesday, March 6th. Tickets are $10, $5 for students, and are available only at the door. Show time is 7:30. Information: 215-517-8337.

Nimrod Speaks has been playing acoustic and electric bass for more than half of his 30 years. He started playing electric bass in high school, mentored by Ricardo Jackson, and took up the acoustic instrument during his first semester at Kutztown University. He eventually graduated Kutztown with a B.A. in Music Education, and later earned a Masters in Jazz Studies from Rutgers University. Along the way, he studied with giants such as Mike Richmond, Victor Lewis and Stanley Cowell. His versatility in a wide range of styles, large, warm and soulful tone, and heavy, blues–tinged groove contributed to making Speaks a certifiably in-demand player, backing the likes of John Swana, Jimmy Owens, Scott Wendholt and Rachel Z, among many others.

For information, call 610-745-3011.

Jazz Bridge is a Philadelphia-based non-profit organization dedicated to assisting area jazz and blues musicians in need. Their Jazz Bridge in Cheltenham program is one in a series at this venue, along with four other area locales.
