Urban Knights VI

Urban Knights VI

by Urban Knights



For their sixth recording, Urban Knights utilizes a core quintet comprised of keyboardist Kevin Randolph, veteran guitarist Bobby Broom, Nick Bisesi on tenor and soprano, electric bassist Maurice Fitzgerald and drummer Quinjuan Anderson. Although Urban Knights has never really had its own distinctive sound, it creates pleasing music that is danceable, funky, soulful and safe. Along with the group originals, Urban Knights romps happily on Stanley Clarke's "School Days" and Ramsey Lewis' "Close Your Eyes And Remember." The latter has a guest appearance by one of the group's original members, pianist Ramsey Lewis. The music overall has a light (some one would say lightweight) feel and should appeal to a large audience. Just do not expect originality, risks or any chances to be taken, for Urban Knights sticks closely to their chosen format/formula.
