Sly5thAve, tenor saxophonist for Prince’s New Power Generation recently rocked Late Night With Jimmy Fallon with Liv Warfield. The talented musician, who’s provided amazing covers of Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” Rihanna’s “Pour It Up” and “Stay,” along with a cover of Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” and Kendrick’s “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” is back with a brand new original piece.
“Akuma” is the title track to his upcoming album and is in full swing jazz mode. And because I don’t follow sports that closely and am working on an editorial, this will be my focus music, alongside Sonny Rollin’s Saxophone Colossus. Pre-order Akuma here.
