A New Urban Groove feat. Doug Ellington

The group is founded on the rich jazz tradition of improvisation, and embraces a variety of jazz styles, especially straight-ahead and funk, with some elements of avant-garde and even smooth jazz. Most of the tunes are intricately arranged for the two lead horns, mainly by Ellington, and feature catchy tunes with driving grooves and plenty of room for spontaneous improvisation. In Ellington's words, "A New Urban Groove was organized not only as an outlet for the expressive musicians who comprise it, but also to provide an alternative for listeners who love the spontaneity of improvised music while still holding value to a rhythmic pulse that will get the toes tapping and the rump shaking." ~ Jazz Archives
