Kassa Overall has released I Think I’m Good, his second full-length album out now via Brownswood Recordings.
The Seattle-raised, Brooklyn-based musician presents a modern, thoughtful blend of hip hop and jazz, with the help of several A-list collaborators: Theo Croker and Joel Ross assist on “Please Don’t Kill Me,” while Vijay Iyer is credited on the closing track “Was She Happy,” which serves as a tribute to the late Geri Allen, who had mentored both artists. Political activist and scholar Angela Davis even appears on the previously released track “Show Me a Prison.”
In a recent interview with American Songwriter, Overall reflected on the release of the record: “I feel like it was one of the hardest things I ever did. It took a lot of belief in myself, and courage. Now, I think I’m just excited for the world to hear it and to see where it takes me next.”
