Makaya McCraven - In The Moment: Deluxe Edition (3xLP)

Ships In 3-4 Business Days

3LP in Heavyweight Gatefold w/ IARC OBI Strip & Dome Pattern Inner Sleeves

Good news! Makaya McCraven’s modern classic, International Anthem debut In The Moment is available on vinyl for the first time since 2015, when the album’s breakout success made the first pressing an overnight scarcity (in addition to an “Album of the Week” for Gilles Peterson on BBC, and eventually a “Best Album of 2015” in the Los Angeles Times, NY Observer, Pop Matters & Chicago Reader). And as a bonus, for this new Deluxe vinyl edition, we’ve compiled the original 19-track collection with the 40 minute E&F Sides to make it a full 3xLP set!

Hailed as “one of the most important recordings to date in the modern jazz world” by Turntable Lab, In The Moment served as a blueprint for the unique production style Makaya has honed over three subsequent, critically & communally acclaimed releases in the last four years – Highly Rare, Where We Come From (CHICAGOxLONDON Mixtape), and Universal Beings – where live, contextually-vibrant recordings are edited and post-composed into a form of “organic beat music” that bridges electronic & improvised craftwork inside the sonic framework of jazz.

Featuring contributions from an array of creative music heavies (incl. Jeff Parker and Joshua Abrams), some on the brink of their prime at the time (incl. Junius Paul & Marquis Hill), In The Moment launched Makaya into the vanguard of 21st century jazz innovators (on the front end of the “new wave” that also cites Kamasi Washington, Shabaka Hutchings, and others) while galvanizing a Chicago-rooted community of artists around him into a creative well-spring (see: the bulk of the International Anthem catalogue post-2015). Get this essential album on deluxe gatefold triple vinyl and hold a piece of history, a Chicago-centric time capsule of the new jazz genesis, today.
