"4 1/2 Stars" - Downbeat Magazine

Portrait in Seven Shades
Performed by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and composed by Ted Nash. Inspired by master painters Chagall, Dali, Matisse, Monet, Picasso, Pollock and Van Gogh. Received two Grammy nominations.

The Mancini Project
Nash is joined by three like-minded partners of the highest order, pianist Frank Kimbrough, bassist Rufus Reid and drummer Matt Wilson. Together, and not always at once, they breathe beautiful life into Maestro Mancini's music.

In the Loop
Nash nicely builds on his very fine previous disc with the same band, Still Evolved. Featuring trumpeter Marcus Printup, pianist Frank Kimbrough, bassist Ben Allison and drummer Matt Wilson

La Espada de la Noche
The unpredictable music they create, which is influenced by the cultures of Latin America, South America and Eastern Europe, is full of logical development, rich melodies and unusual tone colors.

Still Evolved
Ted Nash’s first release with his group Still Evolved. Features both Wynton Marsalis and Marcus Printup on trumpet.
"Small group interplay this good should always bring a smile to your face."  Downbeat Magazine

Sidewalk Meeting
Ted Nash's first recording with his eclectic group Odeon. Features Miri Ben-Ari (violin), Bill Schimmel (accordion), Wycliffe Gordon (tuba and trombone), Matt Wilson and Jeff Ballard (drums).

Rhyme and Reason
The Ted Nash Double Quartet, is a finely tuned music machine, led by Nash’s multifaceted horn work along with on-target ensemble work and brisk arrangements. Throughout, the string section provides the tonal balance, continuity and motion.

European Quartet
Nash is joined by French jazzmen Oliver Hutman (piano), Thomas Bramerie (bass) and Jean-Pierre Arnaud (drums), Nash is in good form on songs by members of the quartet as well as familiar pieces like Strayhorn's "Chelsea Bridge” and Gershwin’s “Love Walked In.”
