What is Nu Jazz? Genre Meaning History…
Nu-Jazz, as the name suggests, is an umbrella term coined to indicate the blending of jazz elements and improvisation with modern-day music making techniques and genres (electronica, turntablism, sampling, etc.). It is an even more nebulous genre than Broken Beat, because it is more of an evolution than an emergence – elements of traditional/big band, Acid Jazz, Electric Jazz and 70s/80s/90s jazz-funk/fusion and “smooth jazz” styles as well as touches of other genre influences can all be heard or found. Many of those listed as significant within the Broken Beat genre can be highlighted here too in many and various collaborations, but other artists and producers that should be noted and also cross over are Jazzanova, Rainer Truby and Christian Prommer (Germany), Kyoto Jazz Massive, Hajime Yoshizawa, Monday Michiru and Studio Apartment (Japan), Atjazz, The Cinematic Orchestra, Landslide and London Elektricity (UK), Shazz and St. Germain (France).
