Leading up to the much-anticipated April 8th release of his 3ChordFold Live project, Terrace Martin has been doing shows throughout the Los Angeles area. Two days after Valentine’s Day, he held a special performance inside the oldest club in L.A., The Del Monte Speakeasy in Venice, CA.
What made this show so special is there was a very powerful creative energy in the room. One of my Dear friends and Grammy Award Winner Robert Glasper hosted the event and also played keys. Another Grammy Award Winner Ronald Bruner, on drums. He’s one of my favorite drummers and we have been playing together since I was 14. Marlon Williams on guitar, one of L.A.’s most recorded and studio favorite. Ethan Farmer on bass, who plays with the likes of Lionel Richie and every other great pop Artist, and a fleet of other artist came through to grace the stage. Maclom Jamal-Warner with a poem about hoodrats, Kamasi Washington & Ben Wendel on Tenor Sax, Wyann Vaughn on Vocals and Chris “Daddy” Dave’s on drums. Talk about a musical high. Wow!!!
