From Ted Nash: Help Me Find My Uncle's Horn

Published:
Ted Nash 19 years ago I was burglarized and lost, among other things, my Uncle Ted's Selmer Cigar Cutter, the horn he played for years in the studios. He recorded all of Henry Mancini’s music on this horn, including “Dreamsville.”

Here is a cover photo of a record he did with my father, showing the alto.

When I recorded my CD The Mancini Project I used the cigar cutter alto I bought a few years later, and I tried to play it like him. But I’m not him...and I didn’t have his horn.

I am just putting it out there that if you see a gold-plated Selmer alto sax with the serial number 15,535 I would love to get it back. It was my main horn until it was stolen, but more than that it (quite obviously) has tremendous sentimental value.

It’s somewhere...
Thanks, Ted Nash
