Top Definition
Traditional jazz tracks overdubbed with a trip hop and/or Bossa Nova bassline. The freshened up melody is then laced with violins, vibes or live arrangements to create movement. If vocals are added, they are often by an emerging eclectic vocalist or sampled classic jazz lyrics. Nu jazz is a fusion of old jazz rhythms and modern mucical textures. Commercially, the generic version of the sound is branded as lounge music. Nu jazz has a click and a twist, the music has a silky feel and the ability to create a glossy atmosphere with a cool energy that has some soul.
Traditional jazz is classic, nu jazz drops it in an updated suit from rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
