all ages - free
Trumpeter-lyricist-producer Josef Leimberg entrances audiences with a rich tapestry of Afro-futurist sounds.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Leimberg fuses jazz, world music, R&B, and golden era hip-hop instrumentalism that, according to the Los Angeles Times, “blasts into a decidedly cosmic realm … channeled through contemporary beat-based Los Angeles and filled with generational vigor.” Over the years, Leimberg has collaborated with Snoop Dogg, Erykah Badu, Kendrick Lamar, Robin Thicke, Shafiq Husayn, Funkadelic, Freestyle Fellowship, Dr. Dre, Murs, King Tee, Suga Free, Saafir, and Busdriver. He garnered critical acclaim following his work on Kendrick Lamar’s multiple Grammy Award–winning album To Pimp a Butterfly.
Close out the season with tracks from Leimberg’s solo debut, Astral Progressions, and his much-anticipated forthcoming album, The Archer. He’ll be joined onstage with guest vocalist Georgia Anne Muldrow.
Arrive early to hear a DJ set by KCRW’s Novena Carmel!
