Nimbus Sextet 'Forward Thinker Album' Launch Show
Nimbus Sextet are one of the most innovative bands in the new wave of UK jazz. Led by pianist / keyboardist Joe Nichols and signed to Acid Jazz Records, the multi-national contemporary jazz outfit fuses their jazz, world, hip-hop and funk influences uniquely into a strong melodic blend that has set them apart from their contemporaries.
Nimbus Sextet celebrate the release of their second Acid Jazz album 'Forward Thinker' with a very special hometown launch show for Glasgow Jazz Festival. This follows hot off the heels of launch shows at the New Morning in Paris and Pizza Express Live in London in late May, and a packed out first performance at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in January. The album features guest spots from top UK jazz musicians including Nathaniel Cross, Jackson Mathod, Charlotte de Graaf, Jonny Enser and others.
Having garnered widespread critical acclaim from the likes of Jazzwise, BBC Radio 2 and major support from Jazz FM (including the prestigious 'Album Of The Week' spotlight with both of their albums), the band have firmly established themselves as a major voice in the vibrant UK jazz scene.
