Sounds of Crenshaw, Vol. 1 finds producer and multi-instrumentalist Terrace Martin blending various styles of black music (i.e. jazz, R&B and hip-hop) with vocals from Los Angeles natives Chachi (formerly known as Problem), Robert Glasper, Rose Gold, Wyann Vaughn and Preston Harris.
The project delves deep into jazz and neosoul influence while capturing the essence of mainstream R&B and peaking with a gospel duet.
Rika’s Sounds of Crenshaw, Vol. 1 picks: “Intentions,” “Funny How Times Flies,” “Your Space,” “Reprise Of Us” and “Don’t Trip.”
