Katalyst, Adrian Younge, Ali Shaheed Muhammad - Katalyst JID013
Limited colored vinyl LP pressing. Over the last decade, the Los Angeles-based band Katalyst has carved out a name for themselves as bearers of the community driven jazz scene, popping up on major releases while remaining an integral incubator for outstretched corners of the emerging sound. The group members have become favorites of Jazz Is Dead, appearing on stage with legends like Ronnie Laws and Lonnie Liston Smith, and backing Gary Bartz and Roy Ayers on their respective releases with the label. Here, the nascent superstars convene with maestros Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad to document their chameleonic pallet and ever-growing profile as one of the most exciting emerging groups in the genre.
