Stay Black

La Seduccion



Hailing from three opposite sides of the musical universe, the Miami quartet has begun their pursuit against what the general public considers “jazz” music. The Newbold Jazz Project is building a musical medium where hip hop, rock, and jazz interconnect.
All four members: Derrick Newbold (sax); Christian Davis (guitar); Joe Stamm (bass); and Noel Hernandez (drums), specialize in Jazz and various other genres. And yet despite their educational backgrounds in America’s most historic original musical form, the band takes on
influences from famed rock bands to create a sound that mirrors a world where Coheed and Cambria, James Brown, and Miles Davis could all have been in the same band. Listen to the single “Stay Black” and it is clear their music serves an entirely new take on jazz and musical preconceptions.
With the release of their first EP the group earned themselves a spot at one of the most prestigious art festivals in America, Art Basel in Miami, where their memorable performance packed the Multiversal event. One look at their Facebook page and its easy to tell that fans of heavier music, groove-based hip hop, and intense jazz have all found something to connect to. NJP has entered the scene with a huge
first impression, catching the attention of Tracy Fields, DJ of NPR’s most important South Florida Jazz program “Evening Jazz” who hailed the group as “local heroes” and recorded their first full length album. Their debut album is set for release Spring 2013.
