What Other People Have Been Saying...
“Straddling the depths of the old school likes of Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and Prince, the six-piece r&b band also borrows minimalist grooves and a neo-soul vibe direct from D’angelo, Erykah Badu, and Frank Ocean books of love.” – Danny Sigelman, City Pages, Minneapolis, MN
“Gotta see these cats in concert.” – George Harris, Jazz Weekly, Los Angeles, CA
“Sophisticated, seductive and smooth neo-soul music. Brassy horns and a brassier voice. Nooky Jones is flavorful and mouthwateringly juicy. This is Minnesota’s freshest baby-making music.” -Alex Nelson, Star Tribune, Minneapolis, MN
“They fuse R&B and soul sounds with the harmonic possibilities of jazz and the earthiness of funk – bridging the gap between people who like different kinds of music, different vibes.”- David Cazares, Minnesota Public Radio, St. Paul, MN
“Intimate vocals were delicate and engaging, horn arrangements were harmonically and rhythmically advanced, and rhythm was tight, focused and supportive. Like a good merlot, Nooky Jones was a little chocolatey, with hints of soul and hip hop, deliciously danceable, and with a smooth finish.” – Steve Peterson, Rift Magazine, Minneapolis, MN
“This is a six-piece group from Minneapolis that blends soul, jazz, R&B, and funk to create a warm, deeply grooving sound, and their band is made up of some of the most forward thinking players from this little corner of the scene.” – Andrea Swensson, 89.3 The Current, St. Paul, MN
“Nooky Jones is another animal altogether – slow, slinky soul to get the crowd, shall we say, in the mood? With a name like Nooky Jones, we really shouldn’t be that surprised.”-Chad Werner, City Pages, Minneapolis, MN
“Nooky Jones took soul in a more modern and jazzy direction. Singer Cameron Kinghorn has a smooth, cool stage presence.” -Marcus Akre, TwinCitiesMedia.net
