LEWIS NASH QUINTET: The Highest Mountain
Cellar Live, 2012

HARD BOP – Nice, loose live set from a talent-heavy mainstream band. Nash keeps it lively and his drums are hopping, but trumpeter Jeremy Pelt adds some bite against Jimmy Greene’s bluesy tenor sax. Pianist Renee Rosnes can really burn, but here she’s mostly in her uptown mode, and Peter Washington provides a solid anchor on bass.

All good. Fo’s Picks: 3, 4, 6, 8, 9

1. 8:52 – brisk beat sets up flaring trumpet, hard-swinging sax, hot drum solo
2. 9:55 – soft, tiptoe melody: flugelhorn sharpens it, sax & piano bring it back
3. 5:23 – very cool Latin drum solo into upbeat postbop groove. Feels short.
4. 8:10 – snappy hardbop groove: sax rolls with it, trumpet digs right in
5. 8:49 – standard ballad: piano intro drifts into very slow, boozy melancholy
6. 6:31 – swingin’ yet twisty Ornette Coleman: sax winds, trumpet blasts
7. 8:30 – relaxed, dreamy ballad: soprano sax and piano fly high
8. 6:23 – hard & speedy: trumpet has laser focus, swift piano too; band intro
9. 12:09 – swinging midtempo Monk tune, everyone’s in the pocket, bass solo
