MAKAYA McCRAVEN – IN THE MOMENT (JAZZ)
Perhaps you arrived at the Steely Dan Show a little late during the 2014 tour and missed the Bobby Broom Organi-Sation led by jazz great Bobby Broom. If you didn’t come early, you did not get to experience one for the masters of drums, Makaya McCraven. On his solo release, McCraven demonstrates the power and versatility he displayed with Broom, and also showcases his talent as a composer and band leader. The self-produced In the Moment moves from the beginning to end with evocative original compositions, thoughtful arrangements and of course stellar playing. Check out “The Jaunt” and “Lonely” to become a true believer.
