Pianist, composer, bandleader, Josh Nelson is a young leader in the LA jazz scene. Included in his many accolades, he is a Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competition semi-finalist, and a recipient the Louis Armstrong Award and the John Philip Sousa Award.

Nelson returns to the Annex with his "Discovery Project," an original production which combines sophisticated live music with early science fiction film imagery.
