Nash, Ted & Glenn CLose
Tiger Turn, 2021, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: This is a fine collection of modern jazz and ballads composed by soprano saxophonist and conductor Ted Nash. Music is performed by a plethora of all-star musicians including Sherman Irby (a-sax, a-fl), Victor Gaines (t-sax), Wynton Marsalis (t) and drummer Obed Calvaire. There are also spoken word excerpts by Glenn Close, Eli Nash and Wayne Brady that address many of the social issues we face but don’t often discuss openly like “Dear Dad”, “A Piece By The Angriest Black Man in America” and “One Among Many”. The combination of words and great music leads to an informative, engaging and rich session.
