CHICAGO (CBS) — When Freddy Cole takes to the stage Thursday night at the 41st annual Chicago Jazz Festival, he’ll bring with him memories of previous festivals and coming up through Chicago’s music scene on the South Side.

“It’s quite a thrill. It’s quite a thrill. You remember the festivals from the years back when we used to go out in the park and listen to everybody. I’m quite excited about it,” Cole said.Freddy Cole Talks Jazz Fest, Chicago’s Music Scene And Brother Nat.

NEWURBANJAZZ IS 
THE PEOPLE'S MUSIC!!

What is NewUrbanJazz?

NewUrbanJazz is a blend of Contemporary Jazz, mixed with Brazilian and Urban flavors, but also acknowledges the original artform of jazz, in word and song.

NewUrbanJazz continues to reach new heights, with conversations in the SouthEast and Mid-Atlantic regions, headed by Bob Baldwin's "NewUrbanJazz Lounge", a weekly 2-hour program that features all cornerstones of jazz from all around the world.

Radio background:
Bob got his start in 1980, when he interned under the late Frankie Crocker, the afternoon drive-time jock on the then-#1 station in the country, WBLS/NY, under the ownership of former Tuskegee Airman, Mr. Percy Sutton of Inner City Broadcasting.

After taking his break from radio in 1985 to pursue his artist career, it wasn't before landing a Newswriting gig at WINS (aka "1010-WINS) in New York City. it was there that he met Pat Prescott (Air Personality at The Wave in LA), who later secured the morning gig at CD101.9 (WQCD) in 1988. Additionally, Baldwin briefly covered the Jesse Jackson Presidential bid in 1984 for WVIP in Mt. Kisco, NY.

The New York native re-fueled his flame for broadcasting. In 1998-2001, after re-locating to Atlanta, he found himself back in the mix at WCLK (Clark University), who to this day, has a 24-hour Jazz format. After another radio hiatus to travel around the world with his music, he returned in Jacksonville, Fl (Cherry Communications) and set up shop there as the Music Director and Consultant. A year later in 2005, he opened the first ever smooth jazz station in Hamilton, Bermuda (KJAZ) under Trott Communications. He stayed there until 2007 when he returned to Atlanta to be the Music Director back at WCLK. Shortly after, WJZZ came calling (Radio-One) in the fall of 2007, where he began to fine-tune the format he now calls NewUrbanJazz.

Shortly after the real estate bubble imploded in 2008, the aforementioned CD101.9 closed their doors, and that started a landslide of smooth jazz format flips in place of Urban Radio. 24 stations flipped in 36 months, including Clear Channel. It was October 1, 2018 when Bob Baldwin officially launched "NewUrbanJazz" after finding success in the aforementioned Jacksonville, Bermuda, and Atlanta markets.

NUJ had humble beginnings, with college stations jumping on board in Huntsville, Montgomery, Birmingham, Nashville, and Greensboro. Currently, NewUrbanJazz can be heard on over 42 stations in the US and several other internet radio platforms, including the NUJ Live stream at www.newurbanjazz.com.

"We are constantly looking to hear from new artists global-wide regarding the newest and greatest sounding jazz the world has to offer, and although we tend to lean towards a groove, we also show a deep appreciation for our original artform, which showcases such greats as Thelonius Monk, Duke Ellington and Miles Davis, to name a few.

NewUrbanJazz™ is our own diverse brand of jazz, as diverse as the crowds we play for all over the world. While super-radio conglomerates are falling by the wayside, Jazz cats need to stop dummying down the genre of jazz because more than ever in these tough times, the universe is looking for something substantial from creative people, something we are all capable of delivering, that is, if we just push the envelope just a little harder, deeper and further in some deeper media arenas, some of which we are clearly overlooked.

People are already trying to emulate our sound, which we are truly honored, but there is only NewUrbanJazz™. Our sound is as unique as the original KFC recipe, or the iPod. We have our own vibe and we are here to stay. More importantly, several indie stations around the country are flipping to a funkier blend of contemporary jazz, which we are humbly honored to be a trend-setter in this arena."

Stay tuned!!

​ATLANTA AND ST. JOHN STATIONS ADD THE NEWURBANJAZZ LOUNGE

Station affiliates WCLK and WJTX in Atlanta and St. Johns (USVI), respectively, have added the NewUrbanJazz lounge to their weekly programming.

"I'm pleased to announce two new additions to the WCLK air talent team, both of whom have previously been a part of the WCLK," says General Manager David Linton.

"With that, I'd like to welcome Atlanta based Jazz pianist & producer Bob Baldwin to the WCLK team. Bob's nationally syndicated "New Urban Jazz Lounge" will become a part of our revamped Saturday line-up. This will give WCLK two nationally syndicated programs with WCLK/Atlanta, as ground zero, joining the nationally syndicated "S.O.U.L of Jazz" hosted by Jamal Ahmad. Both shows are syndicated by the African American Public Radio Consortium, which our Gen. Mgr Wendy Williams serves as the Board Chair. 

Angela and Bob will be available for our membership drives. Bob and I discussed other ways he can possibly use his celebrity to crystallize some long & short term programming/fundraising/marketing goals I believe we can accomplish. His latest album "Bob Baldwin Presents Abbey Road and The Beatles" is a Billboard Smooth Jazz Top 10 hit and he produced, Ragan Whiteside's current Top 5 Billboard Smooth Jazz, single "See You At The Get Down". 

Please join me in welcoming these two talents to Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK.

​Additionally, WTJX in St. Johns announces that on Mondays, 7-9 p.m., host Bob Baldwin’s show hearkens back to when greats like Grover Washington Jr., Ramsey Lewis, Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis and Wayne Shorter populated the sound with new directions for their music. Bob Baldwin is an International recording artist, jazz concert producer, and knowledgeable host, who brings the audience the living genre from an artist’s perspective. He will be celebrating his 30th year as a recording artist (2018).

Cousin of NewUrbanJazz Founder Bob Baldwin, Pianist Larry Willis 
Passes

--------------------------


Larry Willis, 
Pianist Who Crossed Genres, 
Is Dead at 76

In a career that began in the early 1960s, he worked with a long and varied list of musicians and groups including Hugh Masekela, Carla Bley and Blood, Sweat and Tears.










Oct. 3, 2019

Larry Willis, a prolific pianist who nimbly traversed genres over a five-decade career, died on Sunday in Baltimore (09/29/19). He was 76.

The bassist Blake Meister, who played with him often, said the cause was a pulmonary hemorrhage.

Mr. Willis became a trusted accompanist for figures like the bebop-and-beyond saxophonist Jackie McLean, the South African jazz trumpeter Hugh Masekela and the eclectic composer and arranger Carla Bley. He played in the jazz-rock band Blood, Sweat and Tears, and later in Jerry Gonzalez’s Fort Apache Band, a pioneering Latin-jazz ensemble.

He ultimately took part in sessions for hundreds of albums, including nearly two dozen of his own.

Raised in Harlem, Mr. Willis didn’t start playing piano until his late teens, but once he did, he soared. Immersed in a thriving New York music scene, he worked with some of jazz’s most prominent figures before branching out into Latin music, fusion and occasionally free jazz. The breadth of his career, he later said, reflected the world in which he’d been raised.

“Harlem was a melting pot of a lot of different ethnic people,” he said in a 2010 interview for the website All About Jazz. “There are so many valid schools of thought under the umbrella of this music that we call jazz.”
