“It’s Time” is Kahil El’Zabar’s call to healing through dance. With this recording, El’Zabar puts into motion a new genre he has named avant-house. Taking various elements from the avant-garde jazz expression that remains so strong and so much a part of Chicago’s creativity, and merging them with the creative energy of a more modern form Chicago’s creative music expressed through House Music. “It’s Time” breaks down the barriers that separate these generations and perfectly gives them a place to coexist in an effort to strengthen the community of independent artists that flourish through free expression. El’Zabar calls on long time mentor and collaborator Nona Hendryx to validate the cause and ring the bell. “It’s Time” will open new doors and breathe new life into artistic expression for generations to come.
