The Nu Band, based in the New York City area, tours France, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland and Austria from January 13 to January 29, 2005.

Members of The Nu Band are Mark Whitecage on saxes and clarinet; Roy Campbell Jr. on trumpet and flugelhorn; Joe Fonda on bass; and Lou Grassi on drums.

The Nu Band is a sparkling, dynamic group of pros -- all of whom lead a number of groups, play and record with a variety of world-class musicians, and compose.

Their upcoming European tour is a record release celebration, with the group debuting their 2nd CD, The Nu Band on Tour - Spring 2003 on the German Konnex label. The group's debut CD, The Nu Band / Live at The Bop Shop / Rochester, NY on Portugal's Clean Feed label, was released in 2001.

“You can sense the spirit of discovery and exploration present. There is also tangible reverence for tradition . . . Above all, what you sense here is the language shared by the four musicians . . . Like the Art Ensemble of Chicago, The Nu Band makes music that sounds more like conversation than performance." - James Hale, Coda

“The quality of the performers keeps the listener's interest at a high level . . . this is a band that is potentially among the best in its field." -- Steven Loewy, All Music Guide to Jazz

Dates and locations of The Nu Band's European tour:
January 13: Nantes, France (Pannonica)
January 14: Poitiers, France (Carr

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
