$ 24.98

Grammy-nominated composer, saxophonist, and conceptualist Ted Nash presents this
two-disc, unprecedented historic release which transforms the most poignant moments
from twentieth century speeches on freedom into a beautifully orchestrated modern
jazz suite. To create this brilliant sound world, Nash took the speeches and transcribed
them for their actual musical pitches, creating themes which were placed into contexts
embracing the speaker’s era and location. “Neither a poster boy for the avant-garde nor a
blinders-on traditionalist, Nash is simply his own man…” (Washington Post)
Total Time: 1 hour 44 minutes
