Jon Wirtz's Nuskool
Pianist Jon Wirtz is no stranger to national audiences, having shared the stage with artists including Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, Robbie Krieger (The Doors), Melissa Etheridge, Joe Bonner, Justin Timberlake, and many others. While accumulating a diverse brew of influences as a respected sideman in almost every genre, Wirtz had a desire to put together a modern sound fueled by improvisation, groove, risk-taking and a more roots and soulful feel. Enter Jon Wirtz's Nuskool. Blending the unique sounds of jazz, the deep grooves of hip-hop and R&B, as well as the intimacy of folk, Jon Wirtz's Nuskool is a modern day trio whose sound continues to evolve with every moment of each performance. Featuring 3 of Denver's "first call" musicians, including young phenom Daniel Hogans on drums and bassist extraordinaire Daniel Hogans, the band draws influence from the masters of the past in the truest sense--by being present in the moment. Jon Wirtz's Nuskool keeps alive the improvisational spirit of jazz, contextualized for 2014. Hip, talented, soulful and unafraid to take risks, their sound is shaped by elaborate original compositions, pocket grooves, and a forward-thinking mentality. This is not your parent's jazz.
