Andrew Neu follows up his successful NuGroove Records debut with his
4th contemporary jazz CD, “Everything Happens for a Reason.” Along with
producers Brian Bromberg and Steve Oliver, Andew has assembled an
all-star band, featuring Rick Braun, Bobby Caldwell, Jeff Lorber, Tom
Schuman and Alex Acuna. Embellished by a horn section and a full
orchestra, this project takes you on a musica journey around the world.
Andrew co-wrote a song with Bobby Caldwell and arranged a unique take on
the jazz classic, “Take Five”. Inspired by the soul jazz and Latin
