New Release: Derrick Hodge – ‘Live Today’

 

derrick

The venerable Derrick Hodge today releases his debut Live Today album. Through the lens of a composer, Hodge blends together his experiences playing for artists in an array of genres (jazz, R&B, hip-hop, gospel, and classical). A labor of love, he had a hand in each track, whether co-writing or writing himself.

The album also shows the massively amazing company he keeps, with appearances from Common, Robert Glasper, Casey Benjamin, Chris Dave, James Poyser, Marcus Strickland, and Keyon Harrold, amongst others. Watch the album trailer below to learn more and hear firsthand from Derrick what the project is all about for him.
