Armstrong shares recent favorites this week on Don't Call it Jazz

In this episode of Don’t Call it Jazz, I’m diving into three albums that I’ve been listening deeply to recently, Erika Oba’s new album Strange Moon, Kassa Overall’s recent release Animals and Lean In which is the result of a wonderful collaboration between vocalist Gretchen Parlato and guitarist Lionel Loueke. Each one of these albums are unique and expansive, so we’re gonna dive in by listening to a couple tracks from each one.
