Chris Minh Doky & The Nomads
are set to deliver tradition defying electric jazz that is wired for funk. Chris Minh Doky, Dean Brown, George Whitty and Gary Novak have propelled jazz with an individual passion that radiates when they are on the side or at the front. Now they’ve formed the hardest grooving band on the electric jazz scene—on the planet.
Greatest Funk Groove
Wanderlust has taken the four of them to the four corners of the music world—just like Nomads—playing with artists as varied as Chaka Khan, Michael Brecker, Paul Simon, Mike Stern, Eric Clapton, the Brecker Brothers, Chick Corea and many more. Led by Chris Minh Doky, the dynamics and diversity of Gary Novak’s drums, Dean Brown’s guitar and George Whitty’s keyboards create a funk groove greater than
the sum of its parts. When soaring out on solos, they stay within the satellite pull of the groove they’ve carved and then glide back to the nucleus of funky jazz.

Chris Minh Doky’s versatility and fervor have brought him something akin to rock star status in his native Denmark, where he has been knighted by Queen Margrethe for his contributions to the arts. As the premiere Scandinavian bass player of his time, he earned the respect of the American jazz elite a long time ago when he proved himself by playing with a long list of jazz legends. Now his uncanny style of pulling a funky sound out of an upright bass leads The Nomads on their odyssey
“...there is a softness and crisp clarity that is very different from the sound others derive from the acoustic instrument.”Down Beat (US)
Billboard Magazine (US)
“He emerges from the background of the piano solos to seize the lead with a bear like hug that is briefly overwhelming before it subsides behind the piano, still trailing vestiges of its rugged power” The New York Times (US)
