Albare’s Urbanity Registers On American Smooth Jazz Chart

The music of Australia’s Urbanity, the jazz collaboration of Albare and Phil Turcio, has started to registered on the American Smooth Jazz chart.

Urbanity recently released their first collaboration ‘Urban Soul’. The album reunites Albare and Turcio who toured the world together as part of Albare’s band International Travel Diary between 2012 and 2014. Phil has also played on two of Albare’s recent solo albums.

Phil says he and Albare hear music in the same way. “Everything I throw at Albare comes back as if I would have played it myself.”

“We love jazz beyond the traditional sense,” says Albare. “I think that Jazz of the 21st Century is all encompassing. There are no limits.”

The new album ‘Urban Soul’ drew the attention of writer Jonathan Widran who writes at SmoothJazz.com that it is “Packed with dreamy, sensual melodies, lush atmospheres, easy funk, and touches of traditional jazz improvisation, the collection showcases innate instincts and gorgeous grooves that can only happen when two musical titans share this kind of history”.

Urbanity ‘Don’t Look Back’ was one of the most added jazz songs in the USA last week, according to Nielsen.

Urbanity will launch ‘Urban Soul’ in Sydney at The Basement on 31 March, 2017.

Urbanity will also perform at Birds Basement in Melbourne on March 26.
