ONE MORE TIME: Jimmy Nistico & Jazz Express

July 1 @ 6:30 PM

Recorded July 27, 2019

Jimmy Nistico-sax, Devon Bridgewater-trumpet/violin, Dave Henning-piano, Selwyn Reams-bass, Bruce Stodola-drums

Tenor saxophonist Jimmy Nistico regularly brings his hard-swingin’ quintet into The Nash for nights of straight ahead, mainstream jazz.

Jim Nistico was born in Syracuse, NY, and raised in a musical home with older brother Sal Nistico paving the way on saxophone. Jim got started on clarinet at age 10, switching to tenor sax (Sal’s hand me down) at age 15. He played his first professional gig at 16 and continued playing in local clubs until age 21, when he landed a “pit band “gig at 3 Rivers Inn in upstate NY, backing Patti Page, Jerry Vale, Al Martino , and several other music legends of the day. From there, he joined Stan Collela and the official N.Y. State band playing for Bob Hope, Rosemary Clooney, Maxine Sullivan, Jack Jones, Tony Bennett, Natalie Cole and the whole Motown Circuit.

Jim has since stayed busy, having played the Syracuse Jazz Festival three times, the Glendale (AZ) Jazz Fest with his band Jazz Express, the Phoenix Jazz Festival with Lou Rawls, and the Chandler Jazz Festival with New York trumpeter Joe Magnarelli.

These “OMT” shows will be streamed on Facebook in their entirety (minus the intermission) so that you can enjoy them along with others (virtually, of course) as if you were in the audience. You can comment interactively with other viewers and the musicians who are viewing the show. NOTE: If you are unable to watch shows at the scheduled times, they will be available on our Facebook page for viewing on demand afterwards.
