April 4th: Dezron Douglas & Brandee Younger

Dezron Douglas and Brandee Younger are both well-established players in the expansive jazz community. Both based in Harlem, Dezron is a bassist who has played with legends such as Pharoah Sanders and Ravi Coltrane, and Brandee is a harpist who has played alongside Stevie Wonder, The Roots, Lauryn Hill, Moses Sumney, and many more. Late last year they joined forces to release their debut collaborative Force Majeure on International Anthem Records, a breakout record featuring original music and covers of songs by Kate Bush, John Coltrane, Jackson 5, and more. The album was pieced together from live-streamed performances the duo held in their apartment's living room during the COVID-19 lockdown, helping bring their beautiful astral jazz music to a larger audience in need of healing sounds.
