Teaming up to travel from Hip-Hop to Jazz, BrooklynBeatz and CandaceK begin on Marcy Avenue and take listeners on a trip to the famed jazz club as it was during its heyday just north of 52nd Street in Manhattan.
As in life, detours, triumphs, and confusion all play a part in the struggle to find a place where you belong. But what you learn from the journey will enrich the destination. The struggle enriches the finale.
With classic sounds from both of ends of the spectrum, jazz vocal stylings, story-based lyrics, and vintage instrumentation and vocal production, the project wouldn't be complete without a touch of soul.
Come on down to Jazz Avenue, by way of Brooklyn.
