"One of the most important recordings to date in the modern jazz world." – Turntable Lab

Makaya McCraven's early 2015 offering In The Moment was pared from nearly 48 hours of live, improvised performance recorded at 1 venue over 12 months and 28 shows. Working with instrumental contributions from an array of Chicago jazz players (including Jeff Parker, Joshua Abrams, Marquis Hill, and Matt Ulery), Makaya culled, cut, rendered and remixed the mass of sounds into 19 potent pieces of organic beat music for the original 80-minute, 2xLP issue.

At the close of a breakthrough 2015 (with In The Moment receiving high marks from BBC’s Gilles Peterson, New York Times, and ‘Best of 2015’ honors from Los Angeles Times, Apple Music, NPR Music’s Jazz Critics Poll, and more), International Anthem announced a limited vinyl pressing of In The Moment E & F Sides, which contains 40 new minutes of music produced by Makaya from the same source material and mastered by Low End Theory founder Daddy Kev.

The In The Moment Deluxe Edition compiles both the original 19-track In The Moment and the 40-minute E & F Sides into a single 3xLP collection.
