Born and raised in Southern California, pianist-composer-bandleader Josh Nelson toured with legendary vocalist Natalie Cole for many years, and today he continues to elevate the world of jazz to new heights. In 2006, Nelson was a semi-finalist in the prestigious Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competition. 2007’s Let it Go, was hailed by Jazz Times, All About Jazz and Jazz Review as a fully-realized breakthrough album. 2009’s I Hear a Rhapsody, featured his original compositions, interpretations of standards, and the re-imagining of some popular repertoire. Discoveries (2011), introduced a pairing of classic science fiction film footage with new compositions for a brass and wind ensemble. Live performances of this music feature a video projection and art installation component as well, called The Discovery ProjectExploring Mars (2015) delved into musical themes about the Red Planet, augmented by spectacular NASA/JPL Martian video footage. Dream in the Blue (2016) featured Josh in an intimate duo setting with his longtime collaborator, vocalist Sara Gazarek. The Sky Remains (2017) delved into musical stories and themes originating from his hometown of Los Angeles.
