Excited to announce the release of “Reckoning,” my jazz-meets-boom bap collaboration with the great tenor saxophonist Donny McCaslin! Available now on all streaming platforms!
Donny says: “Reckoning is just that… it’s well past time for us, as a nation, to reckon with the past and how it has and continues to manifest in today’s reality of social and racial inequality. It runs deep and we all have to be accountable to make real change and that includes me as I come to terms with my own white privilege.
“I worked on this piece with producer, (re-)mixer, bassist and composer Ben Rubin. Ben used news coverage samples of recent protests at start and end along with a DJ Premier-inspired boom-bap beat to set the song’s focus.”
