New Kind of Talk is a contemporary electric jazz group, led by Bassist Jim McGee, who is also the composer of the highly original music they perform. They also perform amazing cover tunes, including jazz takes on some well-known pop music. The style is best described (In Jazziz magazine) as “an electric fusion of jazz, rock, funk and Latin genres.” It is a joyful music, with a groove, and has attracted audiences that are much wider than mainstream jazzers.
In addition to McGee, the group consists of Jimmy Meyer on guitar, Craig Kastelnik on keyboards, Michael Trach on saxophones & flute, Daniel Gonzales on the drums and Hector Rosado on Latin percussion. Their latest CD is “The Very Best of New Kind of Talk”, a compilation of tunes from their two CD releases, “Change in Time” and “Songs Out of Character”.
