The Urban Jazz Coalition sound is flush with rhythmic grooves, funky bass lines, and smooth melodies…
A lot of artists aspire to sound as tight and funky as Urban Jazz Coalition, but these gentlemen really pull it off…and how.
Urban Jazz Coalition has been creating a stir all over the country. It’s the freshness of their sound…like an early Spyro Gyra.
Urban Jazz Coalition continues to build on a legacy that rivals seminal groups like Spyro Gyra and The Yellowjackets. A NEW DAY, to quote Smoothjazz.com’s Sandy Shore, “is the most exciting release yet from one of the most spirited jazz ensembles we’ve ever discovered”. The group is super tight, offering fresh and compelling music that is the essence of contemporary jazz…not pop! A NEW DAY is a solid, perfectly balanced collection of music, and supercharges the evolution of Urban Jazz Coalition as a world-class band.
Not only are they absolutely fantastic and fun to work with, the musicianship is superb and they’re a 10 on the crowd-pleasing scale.
Urban Jazz Coalition has created a high energy jazz/R&B/soul sound compared to the likes of Spyro Gyra and The Jazz Crusaders. It’s a blend of fiery funk and smooth jazz textures.
