Multiple GRAMMY Award-winning artist Ted Nash enjoys a career as a performer, conductor, composer, arranger and educator. Born in Los Angeles, Nash’s interest in music started very young, exposed to music and encouraged by his father, trombonist Dick Nash, and uncle, reedman Ted Nash, both well-known studio and jazz musicians. Nash has been a composer since the age of 15. He first came to New York at the age of 18, and soon after released his first album as a leader, Conception (Concord Jazz).

He is a co-founder of the Jazz Composers Collective. One of Nash’s most important associations is with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, with whom he has played for over 20 years. Nash’s composition, Portrait in Seven Shades was commissioned and recorded by the orchestra, and earned Nash his first GRAMMY Award nomination for best arranger. In 2017 Nash received the Composer of the Year award from the Jazz Journalists Association.
