About Jaimeo Brown Transcendence

Jaimeo Brown Transcendence is the project of New York-based drummer/composer Jaimeo Brown and guitarist/producer Chris Sholar. The concept of their collaboration blends early recordings of blues, jazz, and folk songs with live hip-hop, jazz, and electronic elements. The duo first began this approach on the 2013 album Transcendence, which was credited to Brown, but launched their unique collaboration by using African-American spirituals, East Indian music, and other rare samples within a newly formed context. Brown and Sholar returned in early 2016 with their first proper release under the Jaimeo Brown Transcendence banner. Work Songs, released on the Motéma label, continued to sample and reassemble rare recordings and also featured contributions from saxophonists Jaleel Shaw and J.D. Allen, soul singer Lester Chambers, and more. ~ Timothy Monger
