Curtis Nash

Curtis Nash received his MFA from California Institute of the Arts, where he worked closely with members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, former Benny Goodman pianist and Pulitzer Prize winning composer Mel Powell as well as tape music pioneer Mort Subotnick. During this time he spent a summer at the Banff Music Festival being coached by the Canadian Brass Quintet.

While a college freshman, Curtis heard the astonishing request that Miles Davis alumus George Coleman wanted to sit in with his quintet at the Gemini Club in Memphis. During this period Curtis won outstanding soloist awards at the Wichita and Little Rock Jazz Festivals.

He is presently a member of the Monterey Symphony and soloist with the Memphis Jazz Orchestra.
