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 Tyson Ailshie, the band draws influence from the masters of the past in the truest sense--by being present in the moment.  The trio keeps alive the improvisational spirit of jazz, contextualized for 2014.  Hip, talented, soulful and unafraid to take risks, the sound of Jon Wirtz's Nuskool is shaped by elaborate original compositions, pocket grooves, and a forward-thinking mentality.  This is not your parent's jazz.
