Seductive, Sexy, and Smooth 17 Aug. 2008
By Scott Williams - Published on
Format: Audio CD
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 playing.

Song Highlights:
Theme From the Night Visitor: The track opens with a killer bass line by Reid. Light piano strokes, and cymbal work along with Nash's haunting, reflective sax really set the mood for the album. The liner notes call the song suspenseful and mysterious. I think this in an apt description.

Lujon - (also known as a slow hot wind) - This composition from Mr. Lucky goes Latin has a bossa nova feel to it. This dreamy song has a great walking bass line and features a nice piano solo by Kimbrough.

The Party - This song is a swinging 60's soul jazz boogaloo burner. Sounds like something Lee Morgan, Blue Mitchell, or Archie Shepp would have played in the 60s.

Soldier in the Rain - This ballad features Nash on flute. Definitely one of the prettiest tracks on the CD. Also features a nice bass solo by Reid and great brush and cymbal work by Wilson.

This CD shows another side of Ted Nash. It is absolutely essential listening for Ted Nash fans.

The famous ¨Pink Panther¨ sax solo is by the great LA session man Plas Johnson.

So-So 7 Feb. 2012
By Prabhu Ganesh - Published on
Format: Audio CD
There are good moments in this session - but nothing that makes stand out, some of the arrangements lead to no where and sounds more avant-garde on what was expected to be a cheerful tribute to Henry Mancini.
