Nooky Jones at the Triple Rock – if Duke Ellington were still around, instead of invoking “Sophisticated Lady”, he might have mentioned something like “Simply Sublime”..  Nooky Jones, a new sextet led by vocalist and trumpeter Cameron Kinghorn, brought new original flavors to the stage last Friday night. Crossover recipes served by Cameron, Adam Meckler, Ryan Christianson, Kevin Gastonguay, Andrew Foreman and Reid Kennedy engaged the heart, mind, body and soul.   Intimate vocals were delicate and engaging, horn arrangements were harmonically and rhythmically advanced, and rhythm was tight, focused and supportive.  Like a good merlot, Nooky Jones was a little chocolatey, with hints of soul and hip hop, deliciously danceable, and with a smooth finish.  If you were there with or without your man or woman, chances are good you stirred to music you can live and love with easily.
