Nelson L. Render

Nelson returned to Atlanta in 1997 and started a career as a band director. “ I put a lot of my focus on providing the students high quality instruction.”

Nelson regularly performs in Atlanta and the southeastern United States with his Jazz group, The PR Experience. Nelson also currently tours with The Ohio Players. Nelson has performed and recorded with various nationally recognized artists such as Otis Brown III, Wycliffe Gordan, Heston, Curtis Whitehead, Reggie Hines, James Seda, Gary Harris, Dee Lucas, Daniel Solaaman, Kimberly Holloway,Nick Hagelin, Kemba Cofield, Teddy White, A London Arrington, Trendle Thomas, Hudson on Bass, Ced, Rhonda Thomas, Madoca, William Green, and Lelah James.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
