Urbanus, the new release by vibraphonist-composer Stefon Harris, signifies his 7th album as a band leader and his Concord Records debut. The new album picks up where 2004’s Evolution left off in that it features Blackout, his scintillating ensemble that’s as versed in modern jazz as it is with rhythms, melodies and soundscapes associated with R&B, pop, hip-hop and funk.

For this video, “Gone”, they’ve organized a video remix contest: Contestants can download artwork, music and video to remix, then upload it to Stefon’s YouTube group. Stefon Harris and Stacey Robinson, the original designer, will choose the winner.
