Yussef Kamaal may have disbanded, but Henry Wu continues to fly the flag as Kamaal
Williams. For the first LP released under his given name we see Williams behind the
keys in a jazz fusion trio that brings together the visionary aesthetic of the YK
output with the sounds of new London jazz and the shuffling grooves of the Wu project.

Itís not often we mention Jimi Hendrix and Trap music in the same sentence.
Or Brixton and George Benson. In this case Mansur Brown embodies all of these.
An integral part of the groundbreaking Yussef Kamaal album, he now releases his
debut album on Black Focus Records.
As Thundercat claims the Bass Guitar, Robert Glasper the keys, the 21 year old
prodigy from south east London claims the Guitar. Welcome to Shiroi.
