Anton Schwartz & Josh Nelson

Josh Nelson has performed extensively with some of the most respected names in jazz, including Natalie Cole, Anthony Wilson, Benny Golson, Sheila Jordan, Jeff Hamilton, John Clayton, Richard Galliano, Dave Koz, Seamus Blake, Matt Wilson, Sara Gazarek, Jack Sheldon, Tom Scott, and Peter Erskine. Josh has recorded on countless albums, films, and television, and has released five acclaimed CDs of his own. “There’s a lightness in Nelson’s touch reminiscent of Red Garland, an Oscar Peterson dazzle to his technique.” –Jazz Times Magazine.

Josh has been performing with Anton Schwartz‘s quintet since early 2015. Following a sold out festival performance together, they decided to play a duo concert in Oakland, and the chemistry was palpable. We’re looking forward to this, Josh’s first appearance at the loft!
