Jojo Mayer / Nerve

Listed by the Modern Drummer Magazine as one of the ‘50 Greatest Drummers of All Time’, Jojo Mayer toured with Monty Alexander and backed up jazz legends such as Dizzy Gillespie and Nina Simone when he was only 18. NERVE evolved out of Jojo’s legendary party event Prohibited Beatz in NYC during the late 90s. Initially a platform for experimental interaction, the collective eventually developed into a fine-tuned group that cross-pollinated premeditated formats with real time-improvised music performances, bringing in jazz traditions of innovation to the digital age.
