This special series is a collaboration of denver based jazz & funk musicians who have joined together to honor "neo-soul"- a modern musical movement that grew out of contemporary R&B, funk, soul, jazz and hip-hop. Neo Soul Unplugged features Paige Sandusky (Vocals) with Dan Schwindt (Guitar) Jeff Jenkins (Keys) Patrick McDevitt (Bass) and Dru Heller (Drums).
