Transmission #21: The Future Past Part 1
King Britt celebrates trailblazers like Don Cherry, Jan Hammer and George Benson, whose brilliant moments still inspire us today.
“2018 is a master year of cosmic transformation,” King Britt declares. “But it’s important to study what has come before to have the tools to shift the future in all areas.” With this bit of wisdom and optimism, Philly’s musical maven presents us with the first of a two-part series entitled “The Future Past.” This vinyl-only mix of music and interviews by unwitting innovators of jazz, funk and soul captures the boundless creativity one needs to break through to the other side of what’s possible. “Sonic pioneers like Don Cherry, Doug Carn and Urzsula Dudsiak didn’t realize they were pioneers,” King says. “They just had the desire to pursue what they heard or channel heavenly messages.” Kick off your own cosmic transformation with this hour of head-filling and soul-lifting tunes.
