This quartet embodies the fire and passion of John Coltrane's great Classic Quartet of the mid 1960s, while also presenting a modern sensibility that allows the ensemble to generate a sound for the times. "400: An Afrikan Epic" explores thousands of years of the history that is pre-colonial Afrika, the Ma’afa (the 400 years between 1619 and 2019) and Afro-futurism expressing a vision of what Blacks in America will heal toward in the next 400 years; a healthy, high functioning, and united block of the African diaspora.
