Ted Nash Mancini Project Wed. Dec. 2nd At The Iridium Jazz Club

The Ted Mancini Project will play the Iridium Jazz Club on Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009.  The Mancini Project features Ted Nash's interpretations of film composer Henry Mancini's work. The project is deeply personal to Ted as his father played on most of the Mancini soundtracks and Ted grew up listening to this music. The overall sound is seductive and smooth. It reminds me most in style of 60's bossa nova (Stan Getz) and 50's jazz. Also is has a bit of a lounge feel to it. The album is played by a quartet - Rufus Reid bass, Frank Kimbrough piano, Matt Wilson drums, and Nash on tenor sax, alto sax, soprano sax, alto flute and piccolo. The spacing on the album is great. Each musician's part can be clearly heard and the sound is never cluttered. More so than any other of Nash's album, this quartet setting really showcases Nash's playing on a variety of instruments as he is the primary soloist throughout the album. On his other albums there always seems to be so much going on that you don't always get a great look at Nash's playing. Here the sound is very clean and crisp. You really get to see all sides of Nash's playin.
