Last Friday was pretty much a dream Stylin' for me. I had the full lineup of NYC's 'Future Now' in the studio being The Robert Glasper Experiment (ft. Casey Benjamin, Derrick Hodge and Mark Colenburg), Jose James and Taylor McFerrin. Jose performed one of his new songs accompanied by Kris Bowers on piano, then Taylor came in and beatbox-remixed it live. If that wasn't enough, Ethiopian pianist Samuel Yirga also dropped in and played live. We even had a rare appearance from Robert's MC alter-ego Aladdius Young!
Some of the good news: Casey is working on a new album with Heavy and a solo album as Stutz McGee, Jose and Derrick both have new albums coming out on Blue Note and Taylor is also working on a debut album, probably for Brainfeeder.
Derrick Hodge's 'Live Today' album will feature the likes of Robert Glasper, Common and Chris Dave. Jose James' will feature Pino Palladino, Brian Bender, Fink, Emily King, Robert Glasper, Hindi Zahra, Chris Dave and Richard Spaven.
Stylin' broadcasts live each Friday on Australia's best known community station, 3RRR-FM Melbourne.
