Gil Scott-Heron’s final album “I’m New Here”, was a moving but unfinished statement from an important but overlooked artist. Scott-Heron was a crucial voice of protest who deeply influenced black music across genres—hip-hop especially—but he hadn’t done much in a while. A decade later, the songs, poems, and conversational snippets Scott-Heron recorded in 2010, were showing up in the dreams of drummer and producer Makaya McCraven. McCraven brings Scott-Heron’s work down to earth and situates it in a milieu the elder artist would have recognized. With arrangements that move between dirty blues, angelic spiritual jazz, and free-form drumming, McCraven has created a kind of survey of 20th-century black music that doesn’t draw undue attention to itself, one in which every piece fits together.
