Lewis Nash, Jazz Drummer ©Greg Hochman, artdrum.com

I was fortunate to see Lewis Nash play with McCoy Tyner in 2005.  It was a Spring night in Philadelphia, McCoy's home town.  Charnett Moffett joined them on bass.  It was quaint; it was great.  Nash's quick & precise movements, & playfulness during solos are some of the distinctive marks of his style.  He brought out an athletic side to drumming while maintaining touch & taste on his drums.

Nash was born in Phoenix, Arizona.  He began playing drums at 10 years old.  One of his big musical breaks came in 1981 when he moved to New York where he joined the Betty Carter Trio.  He has since been part of other top Jazz combos, including Ron Carter bands, the Branford Marsalis' Quartet, Tommy Flanagan Trio, Don Pullen/George Adams Quartet and others.

Nash is recorded on more than 300 albums! He worked with be-bop father, Dizzy Gillespie; saxophonist & song writer Benny Carter; & pianist extraordinaires Oscar Peterson! Hank Jones! & John Lewis!  As may be expected, Nash has played & recorded with many other great players, including Diana Krall, Joe Lovano and Roy Hardgrove.  He is featured on recordings by Bette Midler, Nancy Wilson, Natalie Cole, Melissa Manchester, Kenny Rankin and pop star George Michael.  Nash continues to record & play in combo bands, all the while leading several of his own groups, ranging in size from duo to septet.  As with other great drummers & players, such as Max Roach & Winton Marsalis, Nash is committed to jazz education and is part of the jazz studies faculty at the Julliard School in NYC.
