The bands

New Nordic Jazz
 Chris Minh Doky heads New Nordic Jazz as they explore the enigma of Nordic storytelling through the sounds of acoustic jazz. His own style of acoustic bass playing is the voice you’ll hear as the tales unfold in lush melodies and solos. 
Chris Minh Doky - acoustic bass, Peter Rosendal - piano, Jonas Johansen - drums.
The Electric Nomads

 The Electric Nomads delivers tradition-defying electric jazz that is wired for funk. Each band member have propelled jazz with an individual passion that radiates whether they are on the side or at the front. Soaring solos and deep grooves, they stay within the satellite pull of funky rock and jazz. One of the hardest grooving bands on the electric jazz scene.

Chris Minh Doky - electric basses, Dave Weckl - drums, Dean Brown - guitar, George Whitty - keyboards.
