Jazz is in the process of undergoing a drastic change.
The Jazz community has done too good a job in transforming public opinion, that Jazz is now seen as a stuffy, staid art form played and listened to by high brow intellectuals.
Nu Jazz instrumentation ranges from the traditional to the experimental, the melodies are fresh, and the rhythms new and alive.

 Nu jazz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Nu-jazz (sometimes electro-jazz, jazztronica, or phusion) was coined in the late 1990s to refer to styles which combine jazz textures and sometimes jazz instrumentation with electronic music.
Like the terms electronica and jazz, nu jazz is a loosely defined umbrella musical style.
Nu-jazz typically ventures farther into the electronic territory than does its close cousin, acid jazz (or groove jazz), which is generally closer to earthier funk, soul and rhythm and blues, although releases from noted groove jazz artists such as the Groove Collective blur the distinction between the styles.

 Nu jazz
Nu-jazz (sometimes electro-jazz) was coined in the late 1990s to refer to styles which combine jazz textures and sometimes jazz instrumentation with electronic music.
The soul of jazz is its uncanny ability to weave itself in and out of other genres while retaining its essence, whatever this may be at the time since it evolves even within itself (consider the myriad variants which have surfaced.
One must be aware that Jazz is greater than the sum of its musicians (Jazz is not simply anything by Miles Davis and not everything by Miles Davis is jazz) and it is itself a conflation of diverse music genres from European Classical music to African Tribal Rhythms to Latin styles to even Indian influences.

 Jazz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jazz is an original American musical art form originating around the start of the 20th century in New Orleans, rooted in African American musical styles blended with Western music technique and theory.
Jazz is rooted in the blues, the folk music of former enslaved Africans in the U.S. South and their descendants, which is influenced by West African cultural and musical traditions that evolved as fl musicians migrated to the cities.
In some modern jazz compositions where the underlying chords of the composition are particularly complex or fast moving, the composer or performer may create a set of "blowing changes," which is a simplfied set of chords better suited for comping and solo improvisation.

 Dubrovnik NU JAZZ&BROKEN BEAT summer conference 2005
The group is one of the foremost proponents of the nu-jazz and jazz house styles of music associated with record labels such as Compost Records and Sonar Kollektiv.
Like the term electronica, nu jazz is a loosely defined umbrella musical style.
It ranges from the infusion of live instrumentation to house beats of jazz house exemplified by French St Germain and German Jazzanova; to more band-based improvised jazz with electronic elements such as that of the British Cinematic Orchestra, and the Norwegian future jazz style pioneered by Bugge Wesseltoft.

 Jazz Concert Review - Nu-Jazz at the Jazz CafĂ© - Nuspirit Helsinki@ jazzreview.com
For those awaiting new experimental sounds in electronic jazz, this is certainly not the gig to go for.
Their sound is partly inscribed into an appropriation of traditional ‘Seventies’ electronic roots, clearly originating from a Donald Byrd or Miles Davis kind of approach (as in their opening with electrically distorted brass,) translated into a dancing frame due to extensive sampling.
In general, the ‘solo’ improvisations were slightly sacrificed to the coherence of the ensemble: among the brass, special mention to the trumpet/flugelhorn, whose solos were the most ‘jazzy’ and frequent of the lot.

 Nu Jazz Essentials: Mr. Gone & Trumethod Collectiv
The track is somewhat marred by Harris’ clichéd sax lines which remind one instantly of hundreds of smooth jazz tracks.
In addition, his sounds and melodies often stray perilously close to smooth jazz territory, as on the insufferable title track, complete with Dave Koz/Candy Dulfer sax work.
Of course, for listeners who enjoy smooth or light jazz, this will likely prove a winning combination, particularly when combined with a dance beat.

 XLR8R - NU SPIRIT HELSINKI: JAZZ NOT JAZZ
This certainly makes things a bit complex, because it’s jazz that springs to mind on listening to their beautiful, eponymously titled debut album for Guidance Recordings.
With up to 20 players, Nu Spirit Helsinki has all the hallmarks of a live band: a big string-soaked sound, lush Afro Latin percussion, three-piece horn section, and guest vocalists.
If that’s the case, Nu Spirit’s album will see them take their rightful place alongside artists like Koop, Jimpster, Fila Brazillia and Quantic—artists that are taking the next steps into the increasingly populated area where dance music and songwriting ability converge.

 Nu Bop, MP3 Album Music Download at eMusic
It's true that, like Sun Ra on his Lanquidity album in the late '70s, Shipp has decided to add programming and synths to his mix for this disc, to at least walk a tightrope between improvisational art and the music of the street.
The band is comprised of Shipp on piano, William Parker on contrabass, Daniel Carter replacing David S. Ware on saxophone and flute, Guillermo Brown on drums, and FLAM on synths and programming.
This is truly a new way of approaching jazz, a new way of hearing the intricacies of rhythmic counterpoint and textured harmonics that syncopate the entire methodology of composition and improvisation into a holistic view of the music as pulse and force.

Nu Jazz Essentials is a two-CD set comprised of two different albums.
Better is "Equation: Boogie" which features Bramley on bass and keyboards as well as a marimba solo by Leni J. Unta.
I certainly cannot say that Bramley and his bandmates have nothing to offer -- they are obviously accomplished musicians and there are times when perhaps one might find Fresh Out of the Box perfect music, but that time is not when one is looking for anything that involves risk or stretches boundaries.
