Biography

Orchestral jazz composer and guitarist Paul Nash was created within the Bronx, NY, in 1948. The kid of a traditional pianist, he gained his initial fleeting flavor of musical achievement in 1966 when one of is own many teenage rock and roll bands made an appearance between a then-unknown Jimi Hendrix and headliner the Blues Task at the renowned Greenwich Community nightclub Café Wha? After graduating from the Berklee University of Music in 1972, Nash relocated to SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA, getting his master’s level in structure from Mills University four years afterwards; then founded the ten-piece Paul Nash Outfit, including trumpeter Tag Isham and drummer Eddie Marshall.
