Upsure is the ultimate hybrid. They're NY & LA...a potent blend of jazz, poetry and politics, their unique mix of eclectic, cutting-edge jazz and corageous poetry is as much influenced by Abbey Lincoln, Sonny Rollins, The Funk Brothers and Stevie Wonder as it is by Allen Ginsberg, Amiri Baraka, Gertrude Stein, Bertolt Brech and Langston Huges. Mixing conscious words with assorted grooves and moods, jazzpoets Raymond Nat Turner and Zigi Lowerberg backed by saxophones, piano, and bass, reach deep into the soul, dissolving boundaries that separate genres and people. Indie Award nomination from the Assoc. for Independent Music in 2000, and Readers' Pick for the Best Poet or Spoken-word Performer in 2003 EB Express "Best of East Bay". UR gonna love 'em. Come celebrate.
