Makaya McCraven - Universal Beings
Universal Beings is jazz drummer / producer Makaya McCraven’s new
album - his most ambitious, elegant and refined work yet.
Recorded at 2 intimate live sessions and 2 pop-up “studio” sessions across
the “new” jazz hotbed cities of New York, Chicago, London, and Los Angeles,
Makaya collaborated with an all-star cast of improvisers (15 musicians in total,
including Shabaka Hutchings, Nubya Garcia, Jeff Parker, Miguel Atwood-
Ferguson,Tomeka Reid, Brandee Younger and Carlos Nino) to create source
material for the signature style of “organic beat music” production he debuted
on the groundbreaking 2015 release In The Moment.
