Trombonist Bill Watrous, whose virtuoso playing has impressed jazz fans since the 1970s, is returning to eastern Missouri to perform at 7:30 p.m. at the Fine Arts Theater of Mineral Area College, 5270 Flat River Rd. in Park Hills.
Watrous (pictured) will be backed by the MAC Kicks Band, an ensemble of musicians from the college.
Known for his fluid technique, memorably displayed on recordings with his Manhattan Wildlife Refuge big band and many others, Watrous last played in St. Louis in February 2012 at the Scottish Rite Cathedral.
Tickets for Bill Watrous at Mineral Area College are $10 for the general public, $7 for MAC students and faculty, and can be purchased in advance at the MAC bookstore or at the door.
