Todd Nelson Todd Nelson

Todd Nelson has recorded or performed with Terry Adams (NRBQ), Gary Burke (Bob Dylan, Joe Jackson), Hayseed, Lonesome Val, Aimee Mann, Ed Mann (Frank Zappa), Pal Shazar, Jules Shear, Rumdummies, Malcolm Travis (Sugar), The Wheelers and Dealers and others. He currently performs original songs and arrangements for his instrumental quartet, TN4. He also performs with singer-songwriters Anna Cheek and Bruce Kean.

The band: TN4 mixes elements of jazz, rock and electronics, playing original songs and new arrangements of unusual covers, including pop, folk and gospel and any other genre signified by the muse.

The music of TN4 is improvisational but not noise; exploratory in texture and sound but melodic; arranged but open-ended; structured while embracing the random; aware of the past without repeating it; unafraid of space, subtlety or beauty, and it rocks.

Todd Nelson - Electric Guitar, Kyle Esposito - Fretless Bass, Manuel Quintana - Drums and Percussion and John Hines - Trumpet and Flugelhorn

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
