Urbanity is the band co-led by Latin Grammy nominated producer, and guitarist Albare with Grammy nominated pianist Phil Turcio. Their urbane blend of relaxed grooves and melodic interplay is showcased on their new CD release on US-based label, ALFi Records, Urbanity.
Urbanity features original compositions by Albare and Phil, along with their instrumental arrangement of The Eagles classic, Desperado. Singer Bernard Fowler and saxophonist Tim Ries (from the Rolling Stones touring band) are featured guests on one track. For the album launch at Bird’s Basement, Albare and Phil Turcio were joined by two accomplished younger generation players on the Melbourne jazz scene, in bassist Peter Mollica and drummer Kieran Rafferty.
