CD of the Month - April 2015

The KCCK Featured CD for April is "Afrodeezia" by Marcus Miller. Inspired by his role as a UNESCO Artist for Peace and spokesperson for the Slave Route Project, the bassist went back to the source of the rhythms that make black musical heritage so rich, following them like footprints from their beginnings in Africa to ports along the slave route all the way to the United States. Miller collaborated with musicians from West Africa, South America, the Caribbean as well as the United States for the project which, he says, is his way of paying tribute to the long journey of his African ancestors who became African-Americans. "Afrodeezia" is Miller's debut release for Blue Note Records.
