NewUrbanJazz™ is our own diverse brand of jazz, as diverse as the crowds we play for all over the world. While super-radio conglomerates are falling by the wayside, Jazz cats need to stop dummying down the genre of jazz because more than ever in these tough times, the universe is looking for something substantial from creative people, something we are all capable of delivering, that is, if we just push the envelope just a little harder, deeper and further in some deeper media arenas, some of which we are clearly overlooked.
