Urban Jazz Coalition has made a strong impression with traditional & satellite/internet internet radio stations propelling their last four CD releases, “Gravitate”, “A New Day”, “Down To Get Up”, and “Long Street” to each achieve “Top 50” status on international airplay charts, and to generate worldwide distribution of the group’s music catalogue.
UJC’s latest project, “One Step Closer”, promises to continue that amazing trend.
UJC’s music has also been featured in network television programming, international film soundtracks, regional advertising campaigns, and as part of an eclectic group of artists on a Gospel/Jazz compilation project released by Capitol/EMI Records.
In addition to the notoriety “UJC” has earned as a self contained group, they have also become one of the most in-demand back up groups in the smooth jazz genre, having performed as sidemen for a number of top smooth jazz artists including Peter White, Nick Colionne, Jeff Lorber, Paul Taylor, Marion Meadows, Brian Simpson, “Shilts”, Jackiem Joyner, Cindy Bradley, Tom Braxton, Ken Navarro, Althea Rene’, Oli Silk, Nils, Jessy “J”, and U-Nam.
When asked why this group has generated so much excitement in smooth jazz circles, Radio & Records chart columnist Carol Archer was quoted as follows…
“A lot of artists aspire to sound as tight and as funky as The Urban Jazz Coalition,
But these gentlemen really do pull it off!
With the success of the band’s previous CD projects, and the positive buzz generated by their consistently energetic live performances, “UJC” definitely has the momentum rolling as they embark on another busy touring season.
