Lucas Johnson nju:zone
The quartet around 26-year-old jazz drummer Lucas Johnson from Herrenberg formed at the renowned Jazzcampus in Basel. The four musicians come from Germany, New Zealand, Argentina and Switzerland and use jazz as a universal language that does not stop at national borders.
Influenced by the cultural and musical diversity of their respective backgrounds, their sound encompasses the full breadth of the contemporary, modern European jazz scene.
Lucas Johnson's edgy and idiosyncratic compositions exude a youthful vigor and energy. As a result, the band plays in a risky and imaginative manner, inspired by the individual personalities of the musicians. Each musician brings their very own character to the table, allowing nju:zone to constantly reinvent themselves.
This year nju:zone presents their latest CD in Switzerland, Austria and Germany.
With the debut album of the same name, Lucas Johnson was chosen as cultural ambassador of the Jazzverband Baden-Württemberg and represented his state at the international trade fair "Jazzahead 2019" in BremenBuy album
