New Nostalgia is a Chicago-based fusion horn band specializing in hard-hitting jazz/pop arrangements for a 9-piece instrumental ensemble. Led by saxophonist and composer/arranger Neil Carson, and populated with some of Chicago’s greatest music makers, New Nostalgia straddles the jazz, pop and rock idioms, with a 5-horn frontline and a driving rhythm section.
Performing electrifying originals and one-of-a-kind cover interpretations, New Nostalgia’s 2019 self-titled debut album received 4 stars from Downbeat. Their EP Frankenstein Sessions was released in September 2021.
Rooted in funk with elements of rock & jazz, Spocket’s tight-knit horn lines and rock solid rhythm section set the stage for their unique brand of funk-fusion.
