Miguel Atwood-Ferguson – Viola
Todd Simon – Trumpet
Andres Renteria – Drums, percussion
Pablo Ygal – Electric guitar
Shafiq Husayn (Sa-Ra) – Juno, drums
Marc de Clive Lowe – Keys, mpc
Computer Jay – Rhodes, keys
Brian Martinez – Acoustic bass, electric bass
KenBts. – Effects
Benjamin Tierney – Recording engineer, mixing engineer.
Thanks to Blu for letting us use his studio.
The experience was pretty electrifying. It was a closed doors, no audience session. All the musicians were crammed into one sweatbox of a room, but for 3 consecutive hours, no one seemed to mind. There were many classic moments, but the moment that produced these 25 minutes of music you’re about to hear was definitely one of the highlights.
More will be leaking and more jam sessions will be taking place all summer. stay tuned, stay woke.
