Here's a great tribute piece to the late great J.Dilla involving Jason Weinberger, WCFSO, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and the folks over at Vtech. They brought forth some remarkable renditions, using an orchestra to remake some of J.Dilla's classic material. You can see the full video above and check out the full details below, enjoy!
“I probably don’t have to explain how exciting it was for me to find myself performing Dilla’s music with the WCFSO. Even more gratifying, though, were other aspects of the evening – feeling the connections emerge between Dilla and his predecessors William Grant Still and Duke Ellington, taking the orchestra outside of its comfort level and in the process to a whole other level of music making, and especially offering our audience the opportunity to abandon preconceptions and discover something special. ”-Jason Weinberger
