A new supergroup - a laid back hip-hop/jazz Dinner Party
“We wanted to make it more about the music. Not about what anybody knows less or knows more. Just make something that feels good to the heart” - saxophonist and producer Terrace Martin told the Fader about Dinner Party, a new supergroup he shares with pianist Robert Glasper, producer 9th Wonder, saxophonist Kamasi Washington, and The Chicago-based singer Phoelix as an added member. They've known each other for years - Martin and Washington attended high school together; Martin and Glasper attended jazz camp together at age 16; Washington and Glasper used to sit in with each other at The Piano Bar in L.A. Dinner Party’s self-titled debut spotlights jazz and hip-hop’s shared history of protest, and it is due out July 10th.
