Drummer Makaya McCraven has put together a groove-heavy album that is well worth your ears, In The Moment. The album, which features McCraven’s drums alongside outstanding young players like Matt Ulery (bass and guitar), Marquis Hill (trumpet), Junius Paul (bass and guitar), Justefan (vibraphone), Jeff Parker (guitar), Joshua Abrams (bass), De’Sean Jones (sax), and Tony Barba (sax and electronics), releases today, January 20. The album was recorded live and consists of improvised performances performed over the course of a year and 28 shows. The 19 songs on the album were culled from nearly 48 hours of recordings to be distilled into some potent groove-based jazz. Check out some of the tunes after the jump.
