...Other Dimensions In Music...

Ever since Doug posted his Outside Beat: A Mixtape, I've been on a little bit of a jazz kick. Among other things, I've been giving Live At The Sunset by Other Dimensions In Music quite a bit of ear.

This album came out in 2007 and features Roy Campbell on trumpet; Daniel Carter on sax/flute/trumpet; William Parker on Bass; and Hamid Drake on percussion/drums. I have enjoyed the collaborations of Parker, Carter, and Drake in the past, and respect them as some of the best free jazz musicians recording/performing today. This album only reinforces my sentiment. Check out the two tracks below and don't snooze on what's going down in free jazz today.

"Other Dimensions In Music: Hip Bop"

"Other Dimensions In Music: Slam Me Down (for Slam Stewart)"
