The Revivalist: Okayplayer Launches Its Jazz Inspired Blog

Okayplayer launched its new jazz inspired blog, The Revivalist, serving as an online journal for the burgeoning jazz community. By illuminating the renewal of jazz’s history, culture, and music — synthesized with the influences of hip-hop — The Revivalist will be at the center of a cultural resurgence of live music by documenting and foretelling the stories of jazz and how it has influenced today’s popular music.  If you find yourself in New York, head to The Evolution Jam Series.  Every Tuesday night a wide range of musicians descend upon the Creole Jazz Café in Harlem from 9PM until close at about midnight. Past jammers have included Esperanza Spalding, Robert Glasper, Grady Tate, Marcus Strickland, and many others. So, if you plan on hopping on the stage, you better bring the heat.

The Revivalist launches in conjunction with the release of “Freedom Suite,” made available as an exclusive free album download for readers of the site. Jazz vocalist and multi Grammy nominee Nnenna Freelon joins hip-hop quartet The Beast to release this 10-track collection of creative reflections on jazz and hip-hop hosted by 9th Wonder.  Stream and download the album here.
