Catching Drift

Benny Benack III
Duration: 7:07

Featuring heavyweight solos from Benack and his band, Catching Drift is a studio track with an outsized, live show feel. The triple-threat Benack has assembled one of the best bands in New York for his forthcoming LP, and he absolutely unleashes them here on this original composition. “Catching Drift is midnight at Smalls,” explains Benack. “That New York energy. I knew I wanted to feature Chad Lefkowitz-Brown, because I knew it would be a great vehicle for him to go nuts. It’s one of my main vehicles for trumpet playing and instrumental music on the album.”

Enough Is Enough

Duration: 8:06

This is a protest song composed and performed by SoSaLa who was a supporter of the "Justice For Jazz Artists Campaign" ran by New York's Musicians Union Chapter Local 802. Directed at the 7 big jazz clubs in New York in 2014 who are still refusing to pay till to this day into the retirement pension funds of the musicians performing at their clubs as they promised it to the Musicians Union a long time ago?! In exchange they have been keeping the waived sales tax money. In this track Dr. Cornel West is featured. I picked his voice up from a YouTube video which is 13 seconds long and added it into the track. His voice very powerful and passionate giving this track some extra punch and meaning. He’s shouting that jazz musicians play an important role in our society. The African rhythm performed by Senegalese Mar Gueye and Masamba Diop was taken from the “Nu Persian Flamenco” track.
