Kassa Overall

Wed, Feb 22

9pm Pacific / SJZ Break Room

Kassa Overall is a jazz musician, emcee, singer, producer and drummer, a product of New York City’s jazz scene who melds avant-garde experimentation with hip-hop production techniques to tilt the nexus of jazz and hip-hop in unmapped directions. His output reflects a panoramic musical background, from West Coast G-Funk to the sounds of the New York underground.
