DownBeat Editors' Pick - September 2013

Ted Nash Big Band - “Chakra" “Nash once again proves to be a thinking man's composer who tackles life's big questions through music. He has assembled a world-class band to execute his vision, and he presents it with little ego but plenty of love. Hearing it on CD is terrific. Let's hope that Nash will be able to present this wonderful music on an extensive tour, too." - Frank Alkyer, Publisher

Ted Nash enjoys an extraordinary career as a performer, conductor, composer, arranger, and educator. Born in Los Angeles, multi-instrumentalist Nash's interest in music started at an early age. He was exposed to music by his father, trombonist Dick Nash, and uncle, reedman Ted Nash - both well-known studio and jazz musicians. Nash blossomed early, a “young lion" before the term became marketing vernacular. One of Nash's most important associations is with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis. Nash has that uncanny ability to mix freedom with accessibility, blues with intellect, and risk-taking with clarity. His recordings have appeared on many national “best-of" lists including The New Yorker, The New York Times, Village Voice, The Boston Globe, and New York Newsday.
