Live Today signals a new journey for bassist and composer Derrick Hodge as he embarks on a solo recording career. Even though Hodge has played with such jazz titans as pianist Mulgrew Miller and trumpeter Terence Blanchard, as well as R&B stars Jill Scott and Maxwell, the 33-year-old bassist is probably best known for anchoring the GRAMMY® award-winning Robert Glasper Experiment. Similar to how Glasper concocts a distinctive melange of modern jazz, hip-hop, and R&B, Live Today too integrates those genres and more into something that’s potent and personal. Live Today asserts a unique sound.

The title alludes to his top guiding principle in creating his debut album, a stunning achievement that showcases the profound depth and breadth of his musicality. Glasper does contribute on several songs on Live Today, as do the rest of the Experiment members: saxophonist/vocoderist Casey Benjamin, and drummers Chris Dave and Mark Colenburg. Hodge, however, cast a wider net for recruiting musicians. The diverse cast includes rapper Common, singer/guitarist Alan Hampton, keyboardists James Poyser and Aaron Parks, saxophonist Marcus Strickland, trumpeter Keyon Harrold, and the American String Quartet, among others.

It's no surprise that bassist Derrick Hodge's debut, Live Today, breathes fresh creativity...he displays his diverse music interests. - All About Jazz
