Ted Nash & Odeon

La Espada de La Noche

2005-06-14

Ted Nash is the nephew of "the other" Ted Nash, a sax player who made his name as a sideman for Henry Mancini in the mid-20th century.

The Ted Nash in question here was a teenage sax prodigy, playing lead alto in Quincy Jones’ band by the age of 17. He recorded his first album in 1979 and has acted as band leader of his own quartet for the better part of 15 years.

The new release teams Nash for the second time with Odeon, a group of musicians who bring violin, tuba, accordion and drums to the mix to add an Old World feel to compositions by Dizzy Gillespie, Zequinha Abreu and Nash himself.
