The veteran musician, and frequent contributor to The Roots, is combining elements of gospel, jazz, and hip hop to release a unique and rich LP.

The album is a thriving, compelling and provocative musical force of nature surely bound for a Grammy nomination.
The instrumental 10-song album is a meditation on the concept of higher love.
Alongside original compositions such as the Latin inspired, "It Might Be Gold" and the deeply personal, "Bleeding Heart", there are his stellar arrangements of pieces by avant-garde jazz master Carla Bley, and Icelandic pop princess Bjork.
