Drummer MAKAYA McCRAVEN Makes Its Way To San Diego With New Works

Makaya McCraven is a beat scientist. The bleeding edge drummer, producer, and sonic collagist is one of Chicago’s savviest cultural players and a multi-talented force whose inventive process & intuitive, cinematic style defy categorization.

Drummer MAKAYA McCRAVEN Makes Its Way To San Diego With New Works

French-born but raised in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts by expatriate musician parents, McCraven studied Jazz at the University of Massachusetts Amherst under the mentorship of jazz luminaries, Archie
Shepp, Marion Brown, and Yusef Lateef, and eventually went on to develop his chops in Chicago’s burgeoning scene. He brings repertoire from his latest album, Deciphering the Message, to San Diego—a new remix project that puts a modern bounce on jazz classics, as well as selections from his earlier works.

This February 23rd performance is part of ArtPower’s jazz series and takes place at The Loft at 8PM. Tickets are $28–40 and can be purchased online here.

See you there, San Diego!
