Makaya McCraven
Where We Come From (CHICAGOxLONDON Mixtape)

Here we have the distilled results of a happy meeting between new collaborators, including Makaya McCraven, Nubya Garcia, Soweto Kinch, Ben LaMar Gay, Quiet Dawn and more. Lots of live fun was had under the CHICAGO X LONDON banner, and the recordings were then taken home for remixing and rearranging by Makaya. The resultant Mixtape is vibrant indeed.

Gil Scott-Heron
We're New Again – A Re-imagining by Makaya McCraven

We’re New Again is a reworking of Gil Scott-heron’s final album, I’m New Here, by jazz musician Makaya McCraven. Makaya’s principal instrument is the drums but he can turn his hand to production too, so getting stuck into this was right up his street. I’m New Here has already been given an alternative spin when Jamie xx remixed it in 2011. This jazz take is most intriguing.

Makaya McCraven
In The Moment (Deluxe Edition)

In The Moment by Makaya McCraven was more successful than anticipated upon its initial release in 2015 meaning the first pressing disappeared pretty quickly. Giles Peterson made it his album of the week and several US publications made it their album of the year. This is the first repressing of the Paris-born jazz drummer’s sophomore release since 2015, expanded to a 3LP set.

Universal Beings

Get ready for some more Epic Jazz -- 2018 has been another good year for it, what with Kamasi and all -- it's hot jazz drummer and producer Makaya McCraven with his latest LP 'Universal Beings'. The record was cut at two intimate live sessions and two impromptu studio sessions, in four cities: New York, Chicago, London and L.A. A total of 15 musicians worked with McCraven -- stellar improvisers all -- with Shabaka Hutchings, Nubya Garcia and Jeff Parker being but three of them. Double LP or double CD, on International Anthem Recording Co.
