(LP + MP3) Grammy-nominated artist Ted Nash enjoys an extraordinary career as a performer, conductor, composer, arranger, and educator. He was exposed to music and encouraged by his father, trombonist Dick Nash, and uncle, reedman Ted Nash - both well-known studio and jazz musicians. One of Nash's most important associations is with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, as well as the adventurous Jazz Composers Collective. Nash's recordings have appeared on many national "best-of" lists including The New Yorker, The New York Times, Village Voice, The Boston Globe, and New York Newsday. The alto saxophonist returns to the intimate setting of a quartet for this release. This is Ted's most personal statement to date - the music is earthy, bluesy and free.
The Creep features trumpeter Ron Horton, bassist Paul Sikivie and Ulysses Owens on drums.
