New Nostalgia - Progtoberfest @ Reggie's Rock Club | Chicago

The jazz and pop styles have long existed in separate worlds, with separate performers, separate audiences, and little crossover in between. New Nostalgia is out to change that: a 9-piece jazz/pop/rock band specializing in updating classic pop songs for our time and our audience, the band is led by saxophonist and composer/arranger Neil Carson, whose unique instrumental interpretations of classic pop tunes are brought to life by a full 5-horn section and a driving rhythm section.

New Nostalgia's sound and concept is born of a distinct void in creative music. Utilizing the verses, choruses and hooks of pop and rock, the advanced harmonic and rhythmic structures and improvisations of jazz, and a little something extra, New Nostalgia occupies a completely unique space in the modern musical landscape.
