Makaya McCraven - Live at Le Guess Who? 2019

Makaya McCraven is one of Chicago’s most versatile and in-demand drummers. At Le Guess Who? 2019, McCraven, together with his stellar live band, gave a wonderfully free-spirited performance. As debut of the show, the group played the brand new song 'In These Times', which you can view below, as well as listen to the entire performance after its premiere via Jazzwise

"The Chicagoan drum don shares a stunning live performance of his band from a recent show in Utrecht." - Jazzwise

Makaya McCraven moves between genres like jazz, hip-hop and funk at lightning speed. Unquestionably respected as a jazz artist, he believes that a receptiveness to other styles is what truly makes a good jazz player. Ceaselessly inventive and productive, McCraven worked with an impressive array of world class musicians, including Archie Shepp, Yusef Lateef, Bernie Worrell, Soulive, Charles Neville, Marcus Strickland, and Shabaka Hutchings.
