Nexus, formed by composer/saxophonist Gabriel Sundy, 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.
