Thanks for visiting us on John Coltrane’s 90th birthday.
It became a very special and fantastic evening for us. One of the best concerts ever since the start in 1979.
And our audience, mostly members of the club this night, loved it!
Rolf at UriJazz, Tønsberg, Norway

Absolute essence.
If somebody asks you what jazz is about, take them to a New Light show or play their music.
Elvin Jones must be proud.
Krzysztof at Kielce Cultural Center, Kielce, Poland

The performance of New Light at Zig Zag was one of the most impressive jazz concerts I've ever seen. 
Dimitris at Zig Zag Jazz Club, Berlin, Germany

I have NOT forgotten the wonderful memorable concert you guys served us on September 22nd 2016!
Everyone who attended voiced their delight in this life giving experience.
It was what we in Norwegian call "en høydare," sort of like a highlight.
As for myself I now listen often to your music on Spotify which keeps my spirits high.
Wishing for a next time!!
Eli Karin Walle, Stoyville Jazz Club,Molde, Norway

I would like to inform you that it was an amazing evening.
The band is complete. Sounds were incredibly clear. The pieces were played with huge energy.
It was one of the best performance I've ever been to!!!!!!

Finally got around to writing about the group New Light with Adam Nussbaum, Gene Perla and Adam Niewood, playing the repertoire that Gene and I did with Elvin Jones in the early 70s. In this recent six concert European tour, we got amazing responses everywhere, like "best gig ever," etc., etc. And the reason is simple. People really want to hear intense burning, taking no prisoners, play with balls music. We (and myself very included) think complexity is a necessity. But playing on an A minor chord with some swinging quarter notes from the bass and a ride beat that lifts off the ground does go right to the heart of the matter. And the heart is basic swinging, burning solo statements from everyone for the entire set with music that is conducive to that kind of attitude. The spectre of Trane and the Classic Quartet does rise up in this regard and after all Elvin was the caboose that drove that engine. What a priveledge to have had a minute with Jones back then. It formed the rhythmical basis of my playing for sure. My appreciation to Adam Nussbaum who plays more like Elvin in a "new light" than anyone else on the planet, knowing when to rise, fall, all towards telling the story; to Gates (Gene Perla) for his commitment to every beat and the spirit of this music; and to Adam Niewood who is absolutely burning every solo. Great band!
