Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola

Ted Nash Quintet

Album Release Party

With reedist Ted Nash, pianist Gary Versace, bassist Rufus Reid, drummer Matt Wilson, vibraphonist Warren Wolf (8/10 and 8/11) and Joseph Doubleday (8/12). 

“These three nights at Dizzy’s were electric for me. I think you’ll hear in it the combination of great players, with history letting loose on music that has grown with me over the course of my career. On this album we share not just a night of music but the history of collaboration. This performance was also a chance to revisit a couple original compositions in an entirely new context, and re-explore music by some of my favorite composers.” – Ted Nash

Saxophonist and composer Ted Nash is a vital part of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and a celebrated bandleader in his own right. Whether playing with Wynton Marsalis, his own Grammy Award–winning big band, or as a sideman in various small groups, Nash expertly pushes artistic boundaries while staying true to the fundamentals of jazz. Tonight’s performance is the album release party for Live at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola—Nash’s first live record in over 25 years—and his band is the same all-star lineup featured on the album: Warren Wolf, a young protégé of Bobby Hutcherson and a leading force on the vibraphone; Gary Versace, a prolific and versatile pianist; bassist Rufus Reid, long-recognized as one of the world’s best bassists, having played with everyone from Stan Getz to Dexter Gordon; and Matt Wilson, an endlessly creative and infectiously joyful drummer who regularly sells out Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola. Individually and collectively, this group is intensely creative, highly experienced, and easy to recommend for a wide variety of music fans. Reserve some seats and come enjoy Nash’s latest landmark recording in the most appropriate setting imaginable.
