Urbanity is the band co-led by guitarist (and Latin Grammy Award-nominated producer) Albare and Grammy Award-nominated pianist Phil Turcio. Their urbane blend of relaxed grooves and melodic interplay is showcased on their recent CD release on US-based label, Alfi Records, Urbanity. Already, three singles from Urbanity, including an instrumental version of The Eagles classic, 'Desperado', have climbed towards the top of the Smooth Jazz charts in the USA.

Guitarist, composer, bandleader and producer, Albare was the pioneer of the 'acid jazz' genre in Australia in the late 1980s. He has continued to record and perform at home and abroad, with a number of distinguished colleagues, including Antonio Sanchez, Hendrik Meurkens and George Garzone.
