Jill Newman Productions
Grammy Award winning jazz saxophonist Gary Bartz began making waves on the jazz scene during its prime in New York City and never slowed down. Mr. Bartz was formally trained at Julliard; however, it’s the time alongside jazz greats like Miles Davis, Charles Mingus and McCoy Tyner that has placed him as a legend in the game. R&B icon, Bilal, serves as featured vocalist for the Gary Bartz Project, and for this special night only, soul sensation and 2006 RBMA Participant, Aloe Blacc, will join them on stage.
This weekend, LA house institution Deep spins the turntables one last time before going on an indefinite break this Sunday. Founded by Los Angeles mainstay house DJ Marques Wyatt in the tiny confines of the legendary Viper Room, Deep has grown into a weekly megaclub-sized (on a Sunday no less) and has welcomed a generation of American house DJs to it’s decks. URB takes a photo tour of Deep through the years, here. Tell us your favorite Deep stories in the comment section.
