About the Album

“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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
