Dilla Time: The Life And Afterlife of J Dilla, The Hip Hop Producer Who Reinvented Rhythm
For over 25 years, Jazz 91.9 WCLK and The S.O.U.L Of Jazz has been supporting the artistry of producer James "J Dilla" Yancey. His unique production style, which can be heard on recordings from artists like The Roots, Erykah Badu, D'Angelo, A Tribe Called Quest and Common, not only reinvigorated popular music culture but changed it forever. I'll be speaking with author Dan Charnas on the Saturday evening edition of The S.O.U.L Of Jazz about his book Dilla Time: The Life And Afterlife of J Dilla, The Hip Hop Producer Who Reinvented Rhythm. It's an amazing document that is part informative, part biographical and masterfully explains the legacy of J Dilla. The interview will air during the 7pm hour and you can hear it exclusively via WCLK.com, the WCLK app and in Atlanta on Jazz 91.9FM.
