With a superabundance of musical tastes and talent amongst its members, the Shoesmith Nu-Jazz Ensemble is not restricted by limitations for inspiration. The organic, sexy, smooth sound that is an amalgamation of the musical styles of jazz, latin, jazz and contemporary Australian roots music.

The band performs originals written by bassist Gavin Shoesmith (ex John Butler Trio, Katamaran) and a fine selection of jazz standards with a definitive Nu-jazz twist.

The Shoesmith Nu-jazz Ensemble is the essence of good times, politics, good food and good one translated into an aural experience. The bass of Gavin Shoesmith intertwining with the drums and percussion by Columbian Oslu Cateneda, providing a rhythmical feast for the melodic improvisation by Patrick Van-De-Mosel sax. Their music digs deep into the influences of seminal musicians like Miles Davis, Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus.

The music is a splendid blend of organic instrumentation transformed with boldness into a blend that is The Shoesmith Nu-Jazz Ensemble.
