The living legends of jazz, veteran musicians who have achieved greatness in performing jazz are now being honored at The Nash with the creation of The Jazz Beacon Award. Conceived by Lewis Nash as a way to recognize the important role and contributions these musicians have given to the world of jazz, The Nash inducted its first honoree, bassist Ron Carter, during his March 23rd appearance at the downtown Phoenix jazz club.
Carter had arrived in Phoenix to perform as part of "The Trio," for the "Japan-Jazz Connection" concert, joining Takeshi Yamaguchi (guitar) and Lewis Nash (drums) for a concert of selections from their The Trio II Live in Osaka recording. In front of a sold-out crowd, Lewis Nash presented the award to Carter.
