Lewis Nash and Steve Wilson are two instrumentalists whose playing is richly steeped in the history of jazz. Great musicians in their own right, they have been sought out to play with virtually every great jazz artist of this generation - from Dizzy Gillespie and Branford Marsalis, to Diana Krall and Betty Carter.
