Grand Performances presents Brandon Coleman Artist TAKEOVER
Bending the future of sound, taking ivory and ebony to destinations unknown, is keyboard maestro, vocalist, composer, producer, arranger and astral traveler Brandon Coleman. A regular fixture with Babyface, Donald Glover, Flying Lotus, and Kamasi Washington’s band, Coleman represents a new chapter in the evolution of jazz and funk fusion. His celebrated sophomore album, Resistance, released in late 2018, brought him “All Around The World” to Japan, South America, and Europe alongside Kamasi and traveling North America to support Flying Lotus, with his future funk band, Brandon Coleman’s SpaceTalker.
“For those accustomed to Coleman’s role laying the foundation for expansive spiritual-jazz explorations in Kamasi Washington’s band, it’s revelatory to hear him so spry on his feet and down to get down. If his work with Washington contains all the weight and gravitas of Sunday church, Coleman’s Resistance has all the fun, breeziness- and yes, sunlight- of an afternoon church picnic,” said Andy Beta of Pitchfork. At a typical Brandon Coleman show, whether trio, quartet, quintet, sextet, septet or SpaceTalker, it’s common to get the entire Sunday extravaganza.
