Jazz at the Meeting House!

Mar 21, 2013 07:30 AM - 09:00 AM

Alan Nelson has played with just about everyone and just about everywhere. I probably know every pot hole and bump on the Jersey Turnpike,” he’s fond of saying. His journey has included stints with John Coltrane, the Heath Brothers, Shirley Scott, James Moody, and Jimmy Garrison. In the mid-1970s, he became a part of the New York scene, playing with Hilton Ruiz, George Adams, and what was the beginning of a 12-year association with trumpeter Hannibal Marvin Peterson. As far as he’s come and gone musically and otherwise, he’s true to his Philadelphia roots and his Philadelphia sound. “They call it a ‘Philly Tip,’ he says of his sound and drumming style. “It’s a certain kind of swing. A certain sound that Philadelphia players just seem to have.”
