You are invited to be a part of our 9th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION!!!
Join The Charles McPherson Quintet with trumpeter Terell Stafford, jazz MVP drummer Lewis Nash, pianist Bruce Barth and bassist Peter Washington in celebrating the 9th Anniversary of The Nash. The weekend will concurrently honor the centennial of Charlie “Bird” Parker, who is widely regarded as the father of Be-Bop. Alto saxophonist Charles McPherson was chosen to headline the weekend because of his reputation for keeping the torch of Charlie Parker burning brightly through his virtuosity, while being constantly fresh and innovative – never stuck in the past.
Joined by “hard-swinging beguiling pianist Bruce Barth and returning favorite bassist Peter Washington, this jazz star-powered weekend will kick off November 5 with a private party for 50 guests featuring a performance by the Terell Stafford-Lewis Nash Quartet, a panoramic birds-eye view Phoenix, and complimentary wine and hors d’ouevres. Saturday November 6, the Charles McPherson Quintet with Terell Stafford pays homage to the legendary collaboration of Parker and Dizzy Gillespie (“Bird and Diz”) with 7:00 pm and 9:15 shows at The Nash. The weekend concludes with a big band finale as Terell Stafford is the guest artist with the Scottsdale Community College Big Band at 7:00 pm.
