Gil Scott-Heron & Makaya McCraven - We're New Again - A Reimagining by Makaya McCraven
Feb 8, 2020
71
For this review, I take this opportunity to pay homage to a great legend Gil Scott Heron as much artistically as humanly, a great poet and singer. He offered us excellent works, especially in the 70s, and he's a bit our first rapper in history. God knows how important hip hop is to me.

So how do we approach and what do we think of a new re-imagining of the incredible album I'm New Here: First of all, I'd like to say that the tribute is very successful. In my opinion it's impossible to do only the original. Jamie xx had also done a great job, but I would say that the work of jazz drummer Makaya McCraven is both different but just as satisfying. Honestly it's not the kind of album I'll come back to, but it has the merit of keeping the legend Scott Heron alive and introducing it to young listeners
