The Internet Just Got a Little Bit Better...

I'm very proud to announce that The Urban Renewal Project's sophomore album,

Local Legend, graces the internet with it's presence today.

"It is truly amazing to see musicians who can play legitimate jazz and funk music in such a big way. Plenty of groups play hip hop with a jazz tone, but not like this. The talent and precision it takes to pull off a sound of such magnitude is beyond impressive."

Gerry Doot, LA Music Blog

"... if you had to choose a band to spend a day with, this is definitely the one you'd want to be around. The fun energy with this band can be heard on the music from their new CD, which blends a rich gumbo of jazz, pop, soul and hip-hop... there are tracks here that will provide the perfect upbeats for a great party."
