Sublime artistry, boundless creativity, and consummate technique are the hallmarks of this of locally celebrated, world-class duo. Although they hail from starkly contrasting home fronts, pianist Josh Nelson (a cool Southern California native) and vibist Nick Mancini (a hothead from chilly upstate New York) possess a profoundly unique musical kinship. Both player-composers appreciate the value of a well-conceived composition and the turn of a clever melodic phrase, but it’s their organic synchrony and dulcet tone that distinguish this compelling musical coupling. Join Josh and Nick as they present an evening of mostly original music with a few choice standards in both duo and quartet settings, with Jordan Richards on bass and Shawn Baltazor on drums.
