The Blues and the Abstract Truth - The Music of Oliver Nelson

The Blues and the Abstract Truth - The Music of Oliver Nelson

OIiver Nelson was an American Jazz saxophonist, clarinetist, arranger, and composer. After six albums as a band leader with such musicians as Kenny Dorham, Johnny Hammond Smith, Eric Dolphy, Roy Haynes, and King Curtis, Nelson' s big breakthrough came with "The Blues and the Abstract Truth" on Impulse, an album featuring the favorite classic standard "Stolen Moments." This record emblazoned Nelson's name as a composer and arranger and he went on to produce and arrange for musicians such as Cannonball Adderly, Sonny Rollins, Wes Montgomery, Buddy Rich, Stanley Turrentine, Nancy Wilson, James Brown, Diana Ross, and many others.

On this special evening we will pay tribute to Nelson's great work with an all-star ensemble of musicians performing some of his greatest hits. The band will include Jason Marshall- Baritone, Jonathan Beshay-Tenor, Lummie Spann- alto saxophone, Wayne Tucker-trumpet, Charles Gould-drums, Noah Jackson- bass, Wilerm Delisfort-piano.
