Big shout out to everyone that made it out to see Shigeto. Extra love for DJ Valida for burning down the opening set and representing all of them proper vibes! Shouts to Adrian Younge for hosting and the rest of the crew for holding it down!
This special Jazz Is Dead brought about a different crowd, but in a very good way. Shigeto helped us to all remember how all genres of music are all connected back to the foundation, which is Jazz. The Detroit native took this musical experience to an entire other level by fusing live instrumentation with beat shuffling on stage. It was his first official West Coast performance with a live ensemble, and LA really was here for it all.
It was definitely a party at this show all in honor of music and the people who make this all possible. Our next Jazz Is Dead will only push the boundaries even more, catch you at the next one.
