Opening the shrinkwrap on a new album is always exciting...even more so when it's the three-record “Héen” (which means "water" in Tlingit) from Indigenous jazz-funk ensemble Khu.éex' ! With five sides of powerful, beautiful music and one side etched with a design by bassist and artist Preston Singletary Glass, this album is a multimedia work of art! https://www.khueex.com/
This week, we'll take it to the dance floor with FSQ's blazing new version of the Talking Heads' "I Zimbra" featuring Dolette McDonald (pictured), hear new soul from Tanika Charles, Carlton Jumel Smith, and Andreya Triana, and get down with the classic Fatback Band "Backstrokin'" as reimagined by Bosq and Kaleta!
