Black Milk – Sonny Jr. (Dreams) ft. Robert Glasper & Dwele

There is so much great music being made, it’s difficult to stay on top of it all. Sadly, Black Milk’s 2013 album, No Poison No Paradise is one such album that escaped my attention which is odd because I was all over Burning Stones, his collaboration with Mel, which was released later that year. Mel is featured on NPNP, as well as Black Thought, and BamaLoveSoul favorite Tone Trezure but the crown gem, for me, is Sonny Jr, featuring Robert Glasper on keys and Dwele solely on trumpet. I seem to recall the album being promoted as experimental, which may have caused me to shy away from it, but this track is premium Neo Jazz that fits very well with what’s being released today. Black Milk comes thru with the snapping drums, under Glasper’s keys and Dwele’s signature horn to create a trio that I would love to hear a full length from. Who’s with me?
