- International Anthem Recording Company, Total Refreshment Centre
Recorded live at Total Refreshment Centre 18 & 19 October 2017 (CHICAGOxLONDON), where 20 musicians and creative minds were involved in a five day mini-residency between two of the most vibrant Jazz scenes at the moment: Chicago and London. The first two days of the showcase was when all of the material was recorded. Days three and four consisted of mixing and mastering the sweaty live concert sessions, and the fifth day was reserved for an event called “Fresh Roasted” where live beat-making and remixing of stems recorded from the live sessions took place. Producers Ben Lamar Gay, Emma-Jean Thackray, Lefto, Quiet Dawn and Don Leisure & Earl Jeffers (of the Darkhouse Family) all pitch in great contributions to giving this live Jazz recording that special mixtape feeling.
Performed by Makaya McCraven - drums; Soweto Kinch - saxophone, voice; Theon Cross - tuba; Joe Armon-Jones - Rhodes piano; Nubya Garcia - saxophone; Kamaal Williams - keys.
