Show number 20!
For LOOPS + DOTS this month I had a chat with Brooklyn-via-Seattle experimental jazz musician Kassa Overall over Zoom outside a Starbucks in Queen Anne, Seattle.
We talked about the current push for equality and justice, Public Enemy, Gary Bartz, McCoy Tyner, his latest album “I Think I’m Good” out now on Brownswood, and his excellent new Blue Note-digging DJ mix “Shades of Flu” [find it at kassaoverall.bandcamp.com].
Plus music from 4hero, Courtney Pine, Attica Blues, Roy Ayers + Adrian Younge + Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and Madlib plus an UNRELEASED TRACK from Kassa!
