The Nu Band



The Nu Band is a dynamic jazz ensemble from New York City, featuring some of the most unique, compelling and in-demand voices in creative music today. The band was formed in 1999, and since then has released 10 recordings, completed 9 European and several US tours, bringing forward-leaning, provocative and evocative music to the world.

The Nu Band is Joe Fonda on bass, Lou Grassi on drums (both founding members of the group), Thomas Heberer on trumpet and Kenny Wessel on guitar. Each member of the ensemble composes and brings a fresh and individual take on dealing with improvised music, combining structure and freedom. The artists, all of whom lead their own groups, play and record with a variety of world-class musicians. The ensemble has found a voice together, collectively, reflecting years of experience and collaboration.

The band has an illustrious musical lineage and history. Past members of the Nu Band include saxophonist Mark Whitecage and trumpet player Roy Campbell Jr. The current edition of the Nu Band retains the core of the groupís concept, while forging ahead musically into the future.
