    Originally appearing on 2010's 'I'm New Here,' this track from Gil Scott-Heron's 13th (and final) album received this re-imagining ten years later from American jazz drummer and bandleader, Makaya McCraven. --- Working with his regular circle of collaborators, many of whom have made highly regarded albums of their own in recent years (Jeff Parker on guitar, Brandee Younger on harp, Junius Paul on bass, Ben Lamar Gay on instruments and percussion), McCraven brings Scott-Heron’s work down to earth and situates it in a milieu the elder artist would have recognized.: https://bit.ly/3vviOKx

    I’d like to recognize your station’s strength and resilience for being live on air...you and your staff are bad asses. I can’t thank you enough for the sliver of normalcy KEXP is providing right now. Love you all. Brian

    "Chicago drummer/producer Makaya McCraven reworks the late poet/musician’s final album (2010’s 'I’m New Here') with help from a strong supporting cast of Chicago musicians including Jeff Parker on guitar, Brandee Younger on harp, Junius Paul on bass and Ben Lamar Gay on multiple instruments. McCraven & co. provide a stronger, more deeply rooted jazz framework that blends beautifully with Scott-Heron's bluesy vocals and poetic lyrics of struggle, love, loss, family and mortality." - https://www.kexp.org/read/2020/2/10/new-music-reviews-210/
