Mount Vernon, NY native Bob Baldwin, Jazz Artist, Radio Host and Music Presenter, is an unsung hero when it comes to the Contemporary/Smooth Jazz genre and is on the move. With a vision to take his gift of music to bless those less fortunate, and raise funds for organizations in need of help, Bob Baldwin adds Arts Advocate and Educator to his resume.
On July 2011, Baldwin released his 16th CD “NewUrbanJazz.com 2 / Re-Vibe” on Trippin’ N Rhythm Records. The CD which debuted on Billboard Jazz at #14, and features Glenn Jones, Darren Rahn, Ragan Whiteside, Joey Sommerville, along with Atlantic Starr legend Porter Carroll, Jr. The reviews have been positive nonetheless.
The unexpected and untimely death of Pop icon, Michael Jackson, on June 25, 2010 led Baldwin to contact the family to ask if he could honor the Pop icon with a tribute CD. After receiving the blessings from the estate of Michael Jackson in February, 2010, Baldwin released his first CD of the new decade (his 14th overall) simply titled “Never Can Say Goodbye,” a tribute to Michael Jackson.
In 2008, he launched the NewUrbanJazz Lounge, which showcases a variety of Contemporary Jazz, with touches of Urban and Brazilian flavors. www.newurbanjazz.com
