About this item
20-year-old jazz prodigy Jamael Dean’s debut is the latest edition on Stones Throw Records. ‘Black Space Tapes’ is co-produced, compiled and sequenced by Carlos Niño, internationally celebrated producer, composer, arranger and DJ. At age 15, Jamael played with Kamasi Washington on his 2018 album ‘Heaven And Earth’ and toured as part of Thundercat’s trio. Jamael’s music reflects the dual influence of his contemporaries in the Los Angeles scene and that of jazz ancestors including Sun Ra, Alice Coltrane, Herbie Hancock and soul jazz drummer Donald Dean - who is also his grandfather.
