Ma*JiD: When Questlove met John Blake Jr.
Four-time Downbeat Rising Jazz violinist Ma*JiD, will be in concert fusing his brand of trap-jazz/fusion with the elegance of the classical string concertino along with a spiritually filled gospel choir in an inspired program simply named, “When QUESTLOVE met JOHN BLAKE JR.”
There will be guest appearances by Philadelphia rapper, KHEMIST and Harlem School of the Arts’ DOROTHY MAYNOR SINGERS. “When QUESTLOVE met JOHN BLAKE JR,” will combine the best in strings, voice, and rhythm for your mind and body.
“Ma*JiD’s ability to make impossible intuitive leaps from conception of sound that are bound by acceptable classical norms of mathematical reason to an outward-bound orbit that only someone who experiences the depths of musical possibility can translate into the sound of melody. Naturally this will drive the violinist’s improvising mind into a rarefied realm where few can even imagine being.” Raul Da Gama –JazzDaGama
“Ma*JiD has a unique blend of improvisation, groove and technical sophistication” -Wynton Marsalis
