What are you listening to? At 20, jazz prodigy, pianist and producer Jamael Dean’s visionary debut album Black Space Tape

Pianist and producer Jamael Dean is a jazz prodigy. Just 20 years old, he’s already collaborated and performed with the likes of Kamasi Washington, Thundercat, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, and Carlos Niño.

Jamael’s music reflects the dual influence of his contemporaries in the Los Angeles scene and that of jazz ancestors including Sun Ra, Alice Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, and soul-jazz drummer Donald Dean who is also his grandfather. LA, he says, is the only place I can go in the same day to a jam session with music from the 20s and 30s to another session with music in the 40s through the 80s, and after that play music with my friends from that era onwards. Jamael Dean’s debut album will be released on Stones Throw on November 8th, 2019. ~Editorial Review | Amazon
