The Urban Renewal Project

The Urban Renewal Project uses instruments of a bygone era to create a signature sound that blurs the boundaries between soul, jazz and hip-hop. The group features a Big Band horn section, a singer and a rapper who perform upbeat originals and fresh interpretations of everything from jazz standards to recent hits.
