The Jazz Urbane

Award-winning guitarist and composer Banfield—a Berklee professor and director of the college's Africana Studies program—performs contemporary jazz with his band.

Jazz Urbane is a contemporary music movement that infuses jazz with great R&B songwriting, melodies, grooves, and style. It's not really a "new movement," but a new configuration of a mindset: mature, sophisticated, and creative artistry that provides a groove anyone can feel.
