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 Niao) to create source
material for the signature style of "organic beat music" production he debuted on
the ground-breaking 2015 release In The Moment. The result is this epic, 2xLP set
that represents another breakthrough in Makaya's career as a recording artist, as
well as a definitive new work of the exciting global groundswell of next-generation,
Black musicians re-vivifying and re-articulating "jazz" in 2018.
