O’s Notes: Keyon Harrold is not your ordinary trumpeter! He dances across traditional and contemporary jazz genres while infusing doses of hip hop along the way. They open with “Find Your Peace” featuring Common, Robert Glasper and Jean Baylor. There is spoken word on top of airy pop rhythms on “Beautiful Day” featuring PJ Morton on the mic. Harrold shines (with his trumpet) on “Well Walk Now”, Laura Mvula sings on three takes of the title track alongside Keyon on the mic. They chill on the final two alternate takes of “Find Your Peace”.
