Always looking forward

with old hits, others with traditional repertoire. One reason to listen to Urban Transport is that this jazz quintet eschews such comforts, offering a constantly changing variety of original compositions and arrangements, always looking forward.

The group has been together for half a decade and is now the most consistent jazz combo on the Detroit jazz scene. Urban Transport is made up of trombonist Vincent Chandler, alto saxophonist Dean Moore, bassist Josef Deas, drummer Sean Dobbins, and a rotating roster of pianists. The roots of the group go back to Chandler's septet, which at one point morphed into the Chandler-Dobbins Quintet and finally settled down as Urban Transport. Over the past few years they have appeared regularly in various Detroit and Ann Arbor clubs and have been featured at festivals, won awards, and put out one CD.
