All Over the World Jazz

Sunday, December 18, 2011

Will Calhoun, perhaps best known as the hard-hitting and inventive drummer for Living Colour (their most recent release is "The Chair in the Doorway"), has also worked with tenor saxophone player Pharoah Sanders on a world-jazz effort, “Native Lands.” That record is a blend of jazz drumming, hand drums and other percussion, electronic soundscapes and trancey drum loops; with fluid melodic sax lines from Sanders, and contributions from Mos Def, Cheick Tidiane Seck (Mali), and Nana Vasconcelos (Brazil.)
