Black Friday: tributes to Dilla and Biggie

Jazz and hip-hop seem to have a beautiful cross-flow in Kansas City these days. Mark Lowrey vs. Hip-Hop is a regular source for MCs and jazz players to team up, and Les Izmore and Diverse fused jazz and hip-hop in a tribute to Common’s Like Water for Chocolate last year. Black Friday — that’s November 26 — will unveil tributes to fallen heroes J Dilla and Biggie, and legends like Common, featuring Mark Lowrey, Diverse Duo (Hermon Mehari, Ryan J. Lee), Logan Richardson, Peter Schlamb, Dominique Sanders, Schelli Tolliver, Vance Ashworth and DJ Ataxic.
