Vocalist Zynzelay was listening to a Giles Peterson interview with pianist Robert Glasper when she heard one of his outtakes called "Dilla*Shine." She recorded the outtake and shared it with Charlton Williams. Charlton put his touch on it, she wrote lyrics for the song...and then magic happened. A perfect example of the fusion of jazz, hip-hop, soul & technology! And Zynzelay and Robert Glasper have asked us to share the result with SoulTrackers. Many thanks to our friend, Jodine Dorce, for bringing this to us.
