Jazz, Pictures and Poems — John Nyerges ©2008 J. Nyerges, NBR Jazz (BMI)
All new original music by John with Clay Jenkins—trumpet, Mike Karn—tenor sax, Jeff Campbell—bass, & Rich Thompson—drums.
“My second release as a leader. This is music the way I like to play and hear it — melodic with interesting harmonic changes, but always musical and passionate. It contains acoustic bass and acoustic piano, drums, trumpet, tenor saxophone, and trombone. I hope this classic jazz sounding group and the compositions on it will be timeless and keep your interest on repeated listenings.”

Point of View — John Nyerges ©1991 NBR Jazz
“My first solo release. Features all originals with piano and sax as main soloists plus bass & drums. This CD pays homage to some of the composers that influenced my earlier writing. It contains a mixture of straight ahead jazz trio tunes such as “Swing Shift” and “One For Josh” (for my son Josh) , “A Moment In Time” — a funk trio tune (ala Joe Sample), “Sambelissa” - a modern samba (title a play on words ‘samba’ and daughter ‘Elissa’) ala Chick Corea, “All The Way” — a Jazz-Pop ballad with Gospel inflections, “Scenic View” & “Song For Carina” (another daughter) ala The Yellowjackets, and “In Search Of A Word” — written after listening to sax great Kirk Whalum. “Where The Heart Is” is kind of a statement, the answer being “Home Is Where The…a ballad written in honor of my parents.
It features great work by Brian Scanlon—tenor & alto sax, Ron France—bass, & Wilby Fletcher, Jr.—drums.
