Pianist and composer Bob Baldwin over more than two decades and numerous records has carved out and more solidified his place as one of the chief progenitors of true urban jazz.
Baldwin has a way of digging deep into your soul and touching that inner sweet spot. New Urban Jazz Party showcases Baldwin in the thick of his element fusing funky contemporary jazz with gospel, hip-hop and Brazilian — all with a strong dose of heavy urban flavoring.
Beasley is an acclaimed alto and soprano saxophonist, vocalist and educator who has been a veritable musical renaissance man for over three decades.
Meadows is an internationally renowned soprano saxophonist and composer who has released multiple albums.
Browne, often referred to as “Mr. Jamaica Funk,” is a gifted trumpeter who rose to prominence for his top-charting single “Funkin’ For Jamaica” in 1980.
