    DESCRIPTION

    Groundbreaking studio session recorded with a 7 piece live band. 

    Pressed on 2LP vinyl with OBI Strip and full color insert with lyrics.


    The album is our first "Jazz" project. It is called "Ocean Bridges" and is a full length collaboration with the legendary Archie Shepp. Raw Poetic is the sole vocalist over improv recording sessions of live musicians that he produced via having access to the masters and co-director of the recording date. It is very much an organic collaboration where we had contributors of different and overlapping musical sensibilities in one space. The results were documented live in the recordings. Damu the Fudgemunk says "It is an honor to work with Mr. Archie Shepp. We will cherish the memories for the rest of lives. I hope that these mixes translates the energy that took place in the studio to listeners of these works. The album has a "one of a kind" feel to it in my opinion. Hip Hop and Jazz have crossed paths for decades, but this album was created without any labels or direction therefore the finished product sounds like a very natural and unforced conversation of numerous ideas that transcend a genre. But, I'd say it's in the vein of Miles Davis' "electric period" meets Fela Kuti with a few "straight ahead jazz" concepts if I had to think of something similar".
