The second edition of URB ALT Media's free music compilation, “URB ALT Sampler-Dos," offers more genre blurring sounds from around the globe. The compilation collects songs by various eclectic artists including Gil Scott-Heron, Grizzly Bear, MuthaWit, Meshell Ndegeocello, Toro y Moi, No Bra, BLK JKS, Free Moral Agents, and Leila Adu among many others. URB ALT's history of producing the URB ALT showcase and annual festival has exposed the presenters to wonderful signed and unsigned artists deserving of further recognition.

URB ALT founder Boston Fielder, says “Critics suggest that pop music is pointless while avant garde music is aimless. When a soul legend like Gil Scott-Heron covers MS Delta bluesman Robert Johnson's “Me And The Devil" and plays back alongside rising young creators from Germany, London, South Africa and Brooklyn the vibration is hella expansive. I'd like to think that the 18 exciting artists on URB ALT Sampler - Dos agree that nothing is more paradigm changing than great pop and nothing insures popular longevity than heartfelt experimentation."

URB ALT Sampler-Dos is available for free as an album-only digital download at the URB ALT site (urbalt.ning.com), Amazon.com and ITunes.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
