Sang background vocals with full choir at the album recording session today April 30 for Kamasi Washington’s upcoming Brainfeeder album in Eagle Rock.

Commentary:  Whoa! The music I heard and sang on today reminded me of classic Yusef Lateef, Max Roach + Abbey Lincoln and David Axelrod with live band, strings and full choir. Kamasi is creating a masterpiece. I was in a sound room with 3 male tenor/baritones and 6 female alto/sopranos while Kamasi stood in front of us and conducted. It was inspiring to watch him in his element. I (we) also had to sight read vocal charts and it was a wonderful exercise. Hadn’t done it since college. And to top it all off masters Miles Mosely and Tony Austin engineered/produced. What an honor! I will repost when the album drops and make sure you know when to buy it. I don’t know the title but stay posted for what is sure to be a major musical event.
