Jamila Woods Legacy! Legacy!

On Legacy! Legacy!, the second full length project from Jamila Woods, the singer and poet draws from a rich history of artists whose work“provide(s) the idea of creation as a form or resistance,”according to Greg. Each track is inspired by and named for a legendary creator of color, from "MUDDY" (as in blues behemoth Muddy Waters) to "ZORA" (as in writer and ethnographer Zora Neale Hurston). The music draws from a wide sonic palate, as well, incorporating trip-hop, jazz, r&b, and soul. For the album, Jamila worked with young Chicago producers such as Nico Segal and Peter Cottontale. Greg calls it a“powerful”work. Jim ultimately fell in love with the record and notes that“this is rare album that would benefit from a lyric sheet”to fully absorb the references to a "panoply of African-American artistic contributions."
