Description:

Theo Croker's new album "BLK2LIFE || A FUTURE PAST" features a diverse lineup of guests including Wycliffe John, Ali Lennox, Kassa Overall, Gary Bartz and more. BLK2LIFE || A FUTURE PAST" is the new album by Theo Croker, an elite trumpeter, composer, and producer active in the next generation jazz scene. The album features guest appearances by such diverse artists as Wycliffe John, Ali Lennox, Charlotte Ross Santos, Cassa Overall, and Gary Bartz, who also played on Miles Davis's "Live Evil". Wycliffe John says of his collaboration with Wycliffe John, "State Of The Union 444 || BLK2THEFUTURE," which was released prior to the album. "I love the concept of 'taking back what's ours for the future.'What resonates in the vibe of this song is that when we look at what has happened to our people [race], and even in the very last 40 years or so, how history has always repeated itself anyway. So this is the cry of the young, but a slightly different cry. I have heard the cry for freedom. I've cried for freedom many times, and I've sung "We shall overcome, we shall overcome, we shall overcome," many times, and it still hasn't found its way to me. So this is the youth, when you hear Zio's horns blaring, when you hear that sound track, it's a revolution. And this revolution, unlike that other one, is being televised. And it's being spread all over the world on all kinds of social media. It's about oppression, it's about equal rights, it's about "When are we going to be treated fairly? What are real human rights? But at the same time, this is Zio Cloaker and Wycliffe John, so of course it has to be sexy and cool.I'll make you all dance while I make you think a little! Anyway, I want to congratulate our ancestors. There's a part at the end of the video where I speak Creole, and you can feel the power of it as everything becomes a celebration and a movement." The song was co-produced by Kassa Overall. Theo Kroeker used to listen to the album "The Carnival" (Wyclef Jean Presents The Carnival) when he was in middle school, when he started collecting his own albums. Wyclef, who had been a fan of his as a boy, approached him in the fall of 2020 and invited him to the studio to perform with him. Wycliffe gave him the nickname "Young Miles. (1/2)
