Nexus, formed by composer/saxophonist Gabriel Sundy, is a San Diego based band that performs music comparable to the jazz-fusion and progressive rock of the 1960s and 1970s.
The music of Nexus is a synthesis of psychedelic and prog rock elements, fused with improvisation and harmony that are characteristic of music from modern jazz traditions. The music Sundy has composed and arranged for Nexus was inspired by artists and bands like Mahavishnu Orchestra, Nucleus, Frank Zappa, John Abercrombie, Gong, Yes, and Soft Machine.
