Thoughts while listening —

  • Maybe most interesting record of 2017 so far
  • What a time for instrumental music
  • Perhaps it’s a ‘post-jazz’ period we’re in
  • Post-Jazz artists: Kendrick Lamar, J Dilla, Flying Lotus, Kamasi Washington, Robert Glasper, Thundercat, Hiatus Kaiyote, Snarky Puppy, Esperanza Spalding, BadBadNotGood, Yussef Kamaal, Christian Scott, Elena Pinderhughes, Taylor McFerrin, Chris “Daddy” Dave, Mark Giuliana, Marcus Gilmore, MNDSGN, Dawn of Midi, Dave King, Justin Brown, etc.
  • Christian Scott is a post-jazz artist’s post-jazz artist.  Think about Kamasi, Cory, Marcus, Glasper, listening to this stuff. We’ll hear this album’s influence in 2018.
  • Dramatic brass and woodwind solos over austere, percussive, gradually-morphing instrumental grooves
