Unison Arts presents a performance by “Neil Alexander & NAIL” as part of the 13th annual Hudson Valley Jazz Festival. (This was originally scheduled for August 19 but was rescheduled to September 10th.)
Neil Alexander & NAIL is the funky world jazz-fusion project of keyboardist and composer Neil “Nail” Alexander. Now in their 23rd year, NAIL has released 3 critically acclaimed CDs and performed at clubs and festivals throughout the US. Focusing on original instrumental music, their infectious groove-based world music jams draw influences from Funk, Jazz & Jazz Fusion, Punk & Prog, Folk, Americana, Brazilian, African and Ambient music, forging a blend that’s danceable and meditative at the same time, moving both your body and your spirit.
NAIL is comprised of Neil (Keyboards & synthesizers), Brian Mooney on electric and acoustic bass, and longtime member Nadav Snir-Zelniker on drums.
NAIL’s performance is part of the Hudson Valley Jazz Festival. Now in its 13th year, the HVJF has hosted Wallace Roney, Arturo O’Farrill, Buster Williams, John Abercrombie, Dave Liebman, Lenny White, and The Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, along with many others and maintains its commitment to not just present “the big names”, but a celebration of jazz primarily featuring groups led by Hudson Valley NY resident jazz artists – Musicians deserving of wider recognition and those who folks have expressed interest in hearing.
