The release of Otis Brown III‘s The Thought Of You on September 23, 2014 was a momentous occasion for several reasons. For one, it marked the coming of Brown’s long-awaited debut as a leader, which features beautiful compositions and arrangements brought together by a very special band. The core quintet, featuring Robert Glasper, trumpeter Keyon Harrold, saxophonist John Ellis, and bassist Ben Williams, has a lot of history, and together they make the kind of music that only happens when there’s a high level of trust and appreciation among band mates, combined with their astounding musicianship. Of course, we can’t forget co-producer Derrick Hodge, whose influence had a big impact on the sound of the record.
