Take It All In

Yet another reimagining of Gil Scott-Heron's landmark comeback album I'm New Here? Well, why not. Jamie xx already did such a thing the electro way back in 2011, a year after the original came out, and now it's Makaya McCraven's turn. The jazz drummer and band leader from the Windy City does a fine and subtle job here, jazzing things up in fine style. New again indeed. Listen and compare below if you please.
