What Is Urban Jazz You Ask?

What is “Urban Jazz”? To find out the answer, we had to travel across the great Atlantic Ocean to ask Portuguese SilverFox endorser Nelson Sobral. Nelson very happily told us about his brand new project, Urban Jazz Band, which combines the elements of traditional jazz with some of the odd times and flavors of drum n’ bass while also mixing in some hard funk and “chill out” music. This is music to be heard by the masses. There is something for everyone! You can hear the Urban Jazz Band on their MySpace page.

Nelson was trained at the Percussion Institute of Technology in Los Angeles as well as the Ecole de Jazz et Musique Actuelle in Lausanne, Switzerland. He is now a very successful teacher in Portugal and performs clinics all around Europe. Nelson has a new book available, Linear Mode, which offers a different view toward the development of hand and foot technique, independence, coordination, music “cycles” and improvisation.

Please visit Nelson’s website for more information about his playing, teaching, the new Urban Jazz band CD, and his new book Linear Method! The Urban Jazz Band CD is available through all major digital outlets as well as local stores in and around Portugal.

SilverFox Drumsticks are distributed throughout Portugal by CSS РRepresenta̵̤es, Lda.
