Renowned drummer Jaimeo Brown’s haunting debut as a leader brilliantly taps the root soul connections between African-American spirituals, transcendental East Indian music, Coltrane-esque improvisation and 21st century electronic music. Brown’s chemistry with guitarist/producer Chris Sholar (Q’tip, Kanye West, Jay Z) and jazz sax titan JD Allen is extraordinary. Come witness Brown’s new project live on Tuesday, May 14th at DROM presented by Revive Music and Motema Records.
‘Transcendence’ marks the Motéma Music debut from Jaimeo Brown, a brilliant 34-year-old drummer, composer and conceptualist. With an intriguing amalgam of modern jazz, Southern black spiritual music, East Indian Carnatic music, blues, and hip-hop/electronica production tactics, Transcendence introduces Brown as a fearless renegade – an artist who seeks new pathways for personal musical expression through honoring a deep and broad lineage of musical and cultural traditions.
