Description

WBGO, the world’s premiere jazz public radio station, teams up with Revive Music for the official release party of Justin Brown NYEUSI at Nublu 151 on June 29, 2018.

Justin Brown is among the most in-demand drummers in jazz and beyond. A regular collaborator of Thundercat and Flying Lotus, Brown is a core member of the critically acclaimed Ambrose Akinmusire Quartet. He has also lent his sound to artists ranging from Esperanza Spalding and Bilal, to Terence Blanchard, Vijay Iyer and many more. Now, the virtuosic drummer has completed his first recorded statement as a leader with NYEUSI, which means “black” in Swahili. The Checkout from WBGO is proud to capture this historic moment in Brown’s career with some very special guests. Justin Brown NYEUSI (Biophilia Records) will be released to the public on the same day of the concert, June 29, 2018.

This special show at Nublu 151 launches a new concert series curated and presented by WBGO’s Simon Rentner, that will showcase cutting-edge trends in the world of jazz today — especially as it pertains to the intersection of jazz and electronic music scenes from all over the globe. Rentner’s concept is to pair one cutting-edge jazz group with an experimental up-and-coming DJ or electronic producer or musician. Brown has chosen his close friend from Los Angeles, the brilliant Mono/Poly (Brainfeeder Records) to kick off the proceedings.

First set: doors 7:30PM, performance 9PM
Second set: performance 11:30PM
