Jazz trumpeter/composer Tim Hagans brings his combo to Lexington for an exciting evening of forward leaning jazz. Hagans first came to fame during his three-year stint filling the jazz trumpet chair with the Stan Kenton Orchestra. For 15 years he was artistic director and composer-in-residence for the Norrbotten Big Band in Northern Sweden. He is the recipient of numerous awards and grants, as well as three Grammy nominations. In June 2012 he was awarded an honorary doctorate of music from the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. Hagans has performed and recorded with Thad Jones, Ernie Wilkins, Joe Lovano, Bob Belden, and Dexter Gordon. It was Jones who encouraged Hagans to write music, and his first composition appeared on a Thad Jones Eclipse LP. Since that time he has received a great number of commissions and grants for new works. He is the featured soloist on the soundtrack by Howard Shore for the movie "The Score", starring Robert DeNiro and Marlon Brando.
