black jazz RECORDS recap
Thank you to all who came out to support the great legacy of #blackjazzrecords. Last night was incredibly special and we are all lucky to have these astral jazz pioneers with us. To be in their presence was unthinkable and stupendous. A couple more stops on our #blackhistorymonth celebration. Digable Planets next week and Lonnie Liston Smith the following.
The Black Jazz Records collective is filled with nothing but incredible Artists who have invested in their craft for so many years. It was such a spiritual and uplifting experience that we got to share with everyone in Los Angeles. We had Umoja Hi-fi’s very own DJ Sacred to help us get the night started, and of course Adrian and Ali to bring our guests of honor to the stage.
One of the best moments from the night, was when Jean brought up a diehard fan on stage to sing one of his favorite tracks “Revelation,” and he had flown in that day from San Jose, leaving with an unforgettable and irreplaceable memory. Jean lit up the stage with her incredible vocal techniques, inviting charisma, paired all with the phenomenal musicianship from the icons who make up this one of a kind record label.
These guys might have been making records for 50 years now, but they’ve been performing as musicians for at least 60. It was a tremendous honor to host this once in a lifetime experience.
