Lewis Nash Quintet, Live In Concert: Newport Jazz 2012

Drummer Lewis Nash performs at the 2012 Newport Jazz Festival.
Drummer Lewis Nash performs at the 2012 Newport Jazz Festival.

Drummer Lewis Nash is certainly no stranger to prestigious festival stages; he's served in bands led by Betty Carter, Branford Marsalis and Tommy Flanagan. (And that was relatively early in his career, too.) So it's a great move to give the supporting cast member, who truly innovates within jazz traditions, a share of the spotlight. One of the bands he leads features the front line of Jeremy Pelt (trumpet) and Jimmy Greene (tenor sax); it's a classic quintet lineup, and it's the first on stage on day two at the 2012 Newport Jazz Festival.
