Be sure to catch us — we’ll start playing promptly at 7pm. Nova’s music will last until 8:30, but they’ll be plenty of music for you to enjoy after that if you’d like to stick around.

Nova Jazz Orchestra to Play the Minnesota Music Cafe

Our friends at Jazz Central Studios will be changing-up their musical schedule to feature smaller groups after this month, so Tuesday, February 25 at 8:30 will be our last performance at Jazz Central. Fortunately for us, we have an entirely new venue waiting in the wings, one that we’ve already played this month: The Minnesota Music Cafe. The Minnesota Music Cafe, a venue that for years has featured all kinds of music, also boasts a nice atmosphere with plenty of food and drink. We’ll be bringing our home-grown contemporary jazz orchestra sounds to the MMC the second Tuesday of every month at 7pm. Be sure to be there, and be punctual — we play one set that lasts until 8:30. After we’re finished, you can stick around for Jay Bee and The Routine. So, don’t forget:

  • What: Nova Jazz Orchestra
  • Where: Minnesota Music Cafe
  • When: Every 2nd Tuesday of the month @ 7 pm!
  • Admission: Free!

Nova Jazz Orchestra Performs at Baby Blue Arts!

Nova Performs at Baby Blue Arts Studios

Happy New Year from everyone in the Nova Jazz Orchestra. Here’s some great news to get this new year rolling: Back in September, and with the guidance of our excellent saxophonist Kari Musil, we had the good fortune of recording a set of music at Baby Blue Arts Studios in Minneapolis. That performance is now available at Baby Blue’s website in its entirety, consisting of four original tunes: The Whole Man, To the Source, That’s How I Know, and 11:04. (Also, don’t forget to check out the interview with Mike Krikava about Nova.)

Like The Nova Jazz Orchestra, Baby Blue Arts is a volunteer organization that serves the musical life of our region. Don’t forget to visit Baby Blue Arts on a regular basis to check out all the great music.
