Fiona's Comments

Tips the West Side Story back to real talk. Excellent if you appreciate musicals that shy away from outdone, maxed out thespian exploits.

About the Album

Grammy Award winner Ted Nash, along with his trio mates Steve Cardenas and Ben Allison, celebrates the music of Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story in an intimate setting of sax, guitar and bass. This collection of inventive re-imaginations of iconic songs from one of the greatest musicals of all time, got it's start in 2018 during Bernstein's centennial. Nash's trio premiered these fresh arrangements at the Havana Jazz festival (Cuba) in 2018. This release is a follow up to their last trio recording: A Quiet Revolution (Ben Allison). If you like beautiful melodies and creative interactive improvisations, you will not be disappointed by this album.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
