Album Notes
Grammy Award winner Ted Nash, along with his trio mates Steve Cardenas and Ben Allison, celebrates the music of Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story in an intimate setting of sax, guitar and bass. This collection of inventive re-imaginations of iconic songs from one of the greatest musicals of all time, got it's start in 2018 during Bernstein's centennial. Nash's trio premiered these fresh arrangements at the Havana Jazz festival (Cuba) in 2018.

This release is a follow up to their last trio recording: A Quiet Revolution (Ben Allison).

If you like beautiful melodies and creative interactive improvisations, you will not be disappointed by this album.

In Ted Nash's own words:
"There was a moment backstage when I wiped a bead of sweat from my temple and glanced over at Steve and Ben. We shook our heads and laughed. It was the only way to express the gratitude and sheer joy we felt about the interplay and trust we just experienced during the past hour on stage at the Havana Jazz Festival.

Our set, comprised of songs from West Side Story, was foremost a celebration of Leonard Bernstein’s centennial, but also an opportunity for the trio to continue the tradition we have created interpreting wonderful songs by composers we love. (Our previous release, Quiet Revolution, was dedicated mainly to the music of Jim Hall and Jimmy Giuffre.)

We were welcomed this particular evening equally by a persistent humidity and an enthusiastic crowd, many of whom lingered at the edge of the stage to connect with us as we gathered our gear a little later. 'You have to record this music,' the group implored.

And it is because of their insistence we bring the songs to you on this album."
