Jazz Urbane is a contemporary recording and performing collective of musicians. It will also be a live music venue coming soon to Boston’s Nubian Square district in the neighborhood of Roxbury.
Founder Bill Banfield describes Jazz Urbane as a “Collaborative of artists, a music that crosses several bridges. This is music that has grown from urban places and thrives because of creative musicians who are tapped into the people, and into progressive, music-art that is urbane, hip and non-categorical.”
Opening in 2023, the Jazz Urbane Cafe will highlight the local and national artists. It will define and celebrate the diverse cultural traditions that make Boston a unique and global city.
