Pass the Fruit
NuSpeak is an up and coming jazz group based in New Orleans, Louisiana, and features the talents of Eli Fribush (alto saxophone), Brian Maassen (trumpet), Michael Taddeo (guitar), Nolan Tecklenburg (piano), Jacob Hubbs (bass), and Karl Tietze (drums).
All clearly gifted in their respective instruments, these young musicians give the classic sound of jazz a modern flare. Their complex compositions and expert use of improvisation pay homage to the old jazz legends, while their hip hop influenced drum grooves and funky basslines can’t help but make listeners want to dance. NuSpeak creates an engaging energy that is best felt at their live shows, that has been captured perfectly in their latest release “Main Squeeze”.
