The CTI record label was famed popularising jazz in the 70s through laying soulful acoustic grooves and elegant string and horn arrangements over popular songs and chart hits played by the top jazz musicians of the time. Artists such as Freddie Hubbard, George Benson, Stanley Turrentine and Esther Phillips achieved a balance between jazz and commercialismin a genuinely artful but entertaining way. Thanks in part to its distinctive cover artwork and crystal-clear recordings, the label became the soundtrack for the smartly dressed but not stuffy, the intelligent but streetwise, the poised but funky.

It's this balance that the NCO strikes. Many of its members have become leaders of the UK's own Nu Cool music scene, bringing a growing audience back to jazz. Some of these audiences might recognise CTI's back catalogue from DJ sets and hip-hop samples by today's stars, whilst others might remember the original classics, tracks that remained approachable whilst refining jazz's searching qualities and virtuosity. Today, jazz is entering a new creative age, a Nu Cool Revolution, largely driven by the young musicians who are emerging from the Tomorrow’s Warriors movement. Nu Civilisation Orchestra captures the original CTI spirit with the new emerging artists of the age.
