(Atlanta, GA)- With 30 years of musical experience under his belt, New York producer and CEO of PhattGroov Entertainment, Donovan "Phattgroov" Henderson seeks to take the urban Atlanta market by storm. “It’s a movement.” PhattGroov says. “I call it Nu-Jazz. A collaboration of rhythm and soul, new and old, north and south." With the recent emergence and tremendous success of the PhattGroov Project, his own jazz band, PhattGroov has expanded into the southern region, taking his smooth grooves, unique sound, and piercing percussion style with him.

Born into a musical family in Kingston, New York, PhattGroov started his career as soon as his motor skills would let him- he was last in his line to play drums. “With my uncle as pastor of our family church, most of my early “gigs” happened there,” PhattGroov likes to joke. All of his cousins were either singing in choir or playing an instrument and one of his uncles, Tony Lindsay, was lead vocalist for Grammy-award winning, Carlos Santana, for over 15 years. Music was in therefore in his genes, and a career in music composition, production, and performance was eminent.

In 2003, PhattGroov started his own jazz band, named the PhattGroov Project and has since then collaborated with a number of acclaimed musical talents. From Gordon Campbell to Eric Walls to Andrew Best, the PhattGroov Project is definitely on the move! Combining heavy bass lines and melodic overtones with a touch of smoothness and rhythm, PhattGroov and the PhattGroov Project gives birth to a nu-jazz sound like no other. “The Phatt Groov Project is a group on a mission,” states one event attendee.“ A mission to get people back in touch with real music.”

PhattGroov believes that music is the ultimate collaboration, and it is this belief that has brought him to the Atlanta area. Appearing with his band in several local hot-spots all-over Atlanta, PhattGroov is one of the most-sought after independent jazz artists in the area. PhattGroov is also currently in the soundlab finishing his debut album, “Soul Jazzations”, to be released in March of 2006.
