'Jazz Musiings' / Chicken Wishbone

Before they treat us with their second LP release this coming Spring, hip-hop jazz outfit Chicken Wishbone are testing the waters with interlude single Jazz Musiings. The essence of Jazz Musiings is in the name: a reflective meditation on jazz. Though meditation becomes mockery in Chicken Wishbone’s use of jazz informed vocabulary and tools to poke fun at the serious nature of jazz with their ad lib progressions. Ironically, the track holds sincerity and seriousness in the raw rap verses from Patrice Lumumba and Dekah Leonardo which weave throughout the song with organic and honest laments on personal anecdotes. In addition to the single they have “blessed” us with a DIY music video capturing the silly soul of the track (you’ll get it after ya listen).
