Ted just passed away last Thursday. 12 May 2011I am not sure, but if I had to guess I'd day Ted Nash (the uncle not the nephew).
Thanks, Andy. I hadn't heard. Never met him or saw him in person, but really tried to emulate his alto sound on Mancini charts. What a loss.Ted just passed away last Thursday. 12 May 2011
Ted played tenor with Les Brown and Billy May. He played alto on most Mancini dates for years. His nephew Ted has some of old Ted's horns including a Jimmy Dorsey type tenor.
