Let's stay in the fantastic Blue Note galaxy with this first beautiful extract from Derrick Hodge forthcoming LP Living Today that will be relased in the Spring of 2013.
An amazing double-bass & bass player and a pillar of Robert Glasper's Experiment and trio formations, Derrick has been working for quite some time on this debut solo LP. There will be some usual suspects on it (Robert Glasper of course, but Experiment's drummers Chris Dave and Mark Colenburg) as well as some high-profile vocalist like Common.
Judging by the sound of this first track, this should be a highlight of 2013 !
If you wanna know more about this record, you can check out the interview he recently gave to the great music site The Revivalist.
