'Beautiful new music' — Colleen 'Cosmo' Murphy, Worldwide FM

Since forming early in 2018, new Scottish contemporary jazz six-piece Nimbus Sextet have already gained attention for their organic blend of jazz, hip-hop and world music elements & their infectious approach to melody and groove. Fresh from the launch of their debut single 'Seance' — championed by Worldwide FM's Colleen Cosmo Murphy — and opening for Gilles Peterson in 2018, Nimbus Sextet return to The Jazz Bar in what promises to be a very exciting 2019 for the band.

The brainchild of keys/harmonica player Joe Nichols, Nimbus Sextet play fresh compositions that span the jazz and world music spectrum and express each member's musical backgrounds. Featuring excellent musicians from the Glasgow and Edinburgh scenes with diverse musical experience from klezmer to Cuban son and funk to folk, the band are united by their collective foundation in jazz and world music. Marrying Afro-Cuban, West African and Balkan motifs with post-bop and hip-hop, their unique 'world fusion' channels an intuitive rhythmic energy and interlaces this with rich melodic ideas and captivating improvisation.

Joe Nichols (keys/harmonica), Martin Fell (saxophones, clarinet), Euan Allardice (trumpet), Manuel Brazuna (guitar), Mischa Stevens (bass), Alex Palmer (drums)
