The Rebecca Sayre Jazz Quartet performs “Old Devil Moon” and more live on Lightning 100 [video]


In February, the Rebecca Sayre Jazz Quartet proved that jazz is still just as intriguing and mesmerizing a genre as ever. Before hitting the stage at Lightning 100’s Chocolate Affair, the Rebecca Sayre Jazz Quartet dropped into the Lightning 100 studio to chat with Casey and perform three jazz staples — “Old Devil Moon,” “By the Bend of the River” and “I Remember April.” Catch the group’s full interview and performances below.

Casey is that rarest of creatures…a Native Tennesseean. His love of music can be traced to the day his dad sat him down and played him Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love?” Everything pretty much changed after that. He began his broadcasting career at the age of 14 at an AM station in Northern Middle Tennessee. It was there he learned how to cue vinyl records, splice tape with razor blades, and other skills that no longer serve any purpose. In the late nineties, he was the host of our evening show until management decided that probably wasn’t a good idea anymore. Casey returned to Nashville airwaves in 2016. When he isn’t on the air, he spends his time with his wife and son. He would also appreciate it if you’d get offa his lawn.
