"Chakra," the latest full-scale orchestral work by Ted Nash (one of the most reliably productive members of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra for most of its history) is the result of a commission from an unnamed producer whose life was saved by an ancient Asian healing technique. Most of the seven movements have a suitably mystical, exotic kind of a sound, in which the influence of Duke Ellington's 1967 masterpiece, "The Far East Suite," is gloriously audible. This is especially true of the conclusion, "Cosmos," which combines Eastern spirituality with North American swing. "Chakra," like Mr. Nash's highly successful previous large format work, "Portrait in Seven Shades," does everything that has been expected of orchestral jazz works since Ellington's time: creating a thematic framework to contain it all, then balancing memorable original melodies against worthy improvisations by an outstanding ensemble of players, including, on "Chakra" number five ("Ether"), the highly vocal young trumpeter Alphonso Horne and pianist Christopher Ziemba.
