- New Tones
- Artist: NOMO
- Format: LP
- Release Date: 5/9/2006
Homemade Detroit electronics and huge horn sections blast big band funk and riotous jazz. NOMO's roots are firmly planted in the fertile soil of African polyrhythm and American free jazz and the band puts on a must-see live show. "New Tones" is a full-color, spiritual soundscape that marries the exotic with the gritty. "NOMO can get to the smoking funk of the Africa 70 and Egypt 80, not unlike the way Jerry Gonzalez cut up his Latin jazz and hard bop album 'Crossroads' with snippets of authentic, percussion-only rumbas to take the listener to Cuba between Latin takes on Monk and Mingus" - Dusted Magazine.
