This Brooklyn DJ, keyboardist, and beatboxer bridges the musical worlds of golden-era soul and hip-hop, free-form jazz, and electronic beats. Opening: SassyBlack (Catherine Harris-White), a vocalist who possesses “an earthy vibe with a cosmic outlook, balancing emotional vulnerability with confidence and swagger” (Earshot Jazz). Noel Brass Jr. (keys), of the psychedelic trio AfroCop, draws as much from punk, gospel, afrobeat, electronics, funk, and soul, as from jazz, with Andy Sells.
