We’re taking to the The Jazz Cafe to feature Makaya McCraven; one of the most exciting, genre-bending talents in the jazz world. The Chicago-bred drummer-slash-producer pushes the boundaries of sound and rhythm, merging his experiences from hip hop bands, African dance bands, Hungarian folk music, and indie rock on top of a deep history of “straight ahead” jazz, improvisation, and the avant-garde with beats and sampling. Having opened for the likes of Wu-Tang Clan and Digable Planets, his influence from hip-hop is unmistakeable, as is his fierce love for jazz.
