'NewUrbanJazz.com 2 / Re-Vibe' carries the torch where the first edition left off, featuring Baldwin's urban jazz influences, where strains of Stevie Wonder co-exist nicely with rich lush full bodied vibes reminiscent of a Quincy Jones.

Tracks Like 'Metro' with its underlying angst and rollicking 'Tower of Power' funk, with tasty fills by AWB Sax Sideman Freddy V, sets the hook. The reeling in continues with the deep set grooves of 'Get Over It' and pulls you further into shore with the satisfying feel good side 'For Grover and George', a tip of the hat to the late Grover Washington Jr. and George Howard featuring sax by Darren Rahn. Your R&B itch will be scratched with the tracks 'Are You Ready' by Atlantic Starr co-founder and Drummer/Songwriter Porter Carroll, Jr. and 'All Over You', featuring the gritty and powerhouse voice of Glenn Jones. The is set rounded out by the contagious, atmospheric 'Arabian Sweets' a swinging Arabic vibe set to a hip-hop beat an idea born out of a recent trip to Dubai. Bob Baldwin fans will rejoice at the arrival of this his finest work to date and the early buzz on the streets indicates that this NewUrbanJazz.com 2/ Re-Vibe will re-invigorate not only his massive following but continue to build upon it.

Bob Baldwin wasn't the first artist to name a project after his website -- Fattburger and Jethro Tull both beat him to the punch -- but the funk-jazz keyboard whiz's Bobbaldwin.com devotes its liner notes to reminding us to enjoy technology but not let it take over for our heart and soul. Baldwin puts his music where his words are, using his synth rack to create numerous busy, often retro-soul textures, but, at heart, his graceful yet punchy melodies shine through at all times. He has a good time with titles, moving from the cool hip-hop of "eSmooth" (which features his trademark high-register swirling solos between revisits to the sax-driven hook) through "Westchester Online" (with a playful cat and mouse game between Dean James's soprano and Joey Summerville's bouncy trumpet) and then on to the album's most unusual piece, "Overtime (In the Chatroom)." As if to make a point about what too much cybertalk can do to one's sensibilities, Baldwin offers no defining pop melody, instead darting in and out with percussive avant-garde synth lines, clicking wah-wah guitars, and an occasionally smooth soprano line from Marion Meadows, over floating, hypnotic atmospheres. Most of the other material is smartly played and very in-the-pocket, from the opening cover of "Never Can Say Goodbye" (with crackling guitar passages and harmonies by Chuck Loeb) and the brassy party tune "Funkin' for Jamaica," featuring trumpeter Tom Browne and the harmonic blend of the saxes of Gerald Albright, Marion Meadows, and Fred Vigdor.
