"Recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York (save for a couple tracks recorded in Dallas), the boundary-pushing record’s blockbuster roster of collaborators includes, but certainly isn’t limited to, Roy Hargrove, Pino Palladino, Questlove, James Poyser, Roy Ayers, Jay Dilla, Betty Wright, Zap Mama, Karen Wheeler, Tom Soares, and Jack DeJohnette. With Erykah Badu remaining a long-time favorite (and former Hip-Hop feature) for VMP, November’s feature came from a delightful social media surprise, and has been a project we’ve been anticipating ever since."
