Ted Nash explores new textures and colors, creating a fresh sound expressed by the exciting and powerful setting of the Big Band...

Grammy-nominated multi-instrumentalist Ted Nash releases his twelfth solo recording, Chakra on September 17, 2013. Nash's new album features a 16-piece big band performing a new long-form composition in seven movements.

Following the success (two Grammy nominations) of his previous big band recording Portrait in Seven Shades, Nash takes his creative expression to a new level with this pioneering recording, featuring New York's top musicians, including Tim Hagans, Anat Cohen, Charles Pillow, Martin Wind and Ulysses Owens, as well as talented new-comers trumpeter Alphonso Horne, baritone saxophonist Paul Nadzela and pianist Christopher Ziemba.

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.
