Multi-talented producer/lyricist Jackson Whalan is back with his band to deliver that good old mix of classic hip-hop, jazz, and soul. As they prepare to drop the 5 track EP entitled ‘Epic Proportions.’ they gift us with a new single “Dilla Report” to set the tone. Backed by the epic energy of his live band, the Dilla inspired instrumental comes equipped with syncopated drum grooves, lush keys, anthemic horns all fused into one.
Comprised of musicians who have been playing music together in the Berkshires and beyond for over a decade, Jackson Whalan’s band includes Jackson Whalan on vocals and sample pad, Jules Jenssen on drums, Brian Ross on bass guitar, Ian Evans on keys, Ian Stewart on trumpet and Tyler Gasek on saxophone. In addition, Michael Wilbur of Moon Hooch is featured on vocals and saxophone for the song “Climate Chaos,” and Whalan’s “Bae” features cello samples by Dave Eggar.
