*This is not a groundbreaking statement nor was it meant to be. I am quite sure this or something like it have been said before in some academic paper. (I just might not have understood what they were trying to say.) Nuhg is audiovisual improvisation group out of Madrid and their Deciduous Wait is a prime example of how jazz has evolved from the orchestra and small band jazz to something completely. As there is no good definition of jazz, I know, I’ve looked, I feel quite safe in declaring electronic improvisation as the new jazz.
