This is just too damn nice. Saxophonist Jaleel Shaw and Dres of Black Sheep collaborate on “Flight (Energy),” a reinterpretation of the original track off Jaleel’s Optimism jazz album. Dres hit up Jaleel on Twitter to let him know that he digged the song “Flight” and that he wanted to rhyme over it, and here we are. Featuring Robert Glasper on rhodes, Lage Lund on guitar, Joe Martin on bass, and Johnathan Blake on drums.
