Music Mountain Presents Ted Nash Quartet
Music Mountain, America's longest running summer chamber music festival, is off to a roaring start as it continues its extraordinary 89th season! The favorite Twilight Series begins on Saturday, June 16th (6:30pm) with a VIP Opening Night featuring the two-time Grammy Award Winner, Ted Nash Quartet playing the rich and colorful sounds of jazz! Concerts are scheduled through September 23.
Ted Nash has become one of the most significant jazz composers of the 21st century. His recordings have received wide critical acclaim, appearing on the "best-of" lists. Nash is also a long-standing member of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, with Wynton Marsalis.
To open the Twilight Concert Series the brilliant and innovative saxophonist, flutist and composer Ted Nash is joined by pianist Gary Versace, bassist Martin Wind, and drummer Matt Wilson. Individually and collectively, this group is intensely creative and highly experienced. "Here's a musician who will attract the new fans of jazz, while knocking the ears off those who've been listening to jazz all their lives." - (G21.net)
