flyinglotusherbieOver the weekend, Steve Ellison aka , tweeted a quick video clip of himself, frequent collaborator and jazz-icon goofing around at the legend’s studio. Although a short clip, comments made by last year about a project he wasn’t allowed to mention yet may be bubbling to the surface. If the three musicians do intend on making together it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. Flying ’ last album Until Quiet Comes has jazz elements throughout and he’s also the great-nephew of the late jazz pianist Alice Coltrane, and her husband / saxophonist John Coltrane. Add that to the way in which Herbie has pioneered jazz and mixing genres and we very much hope this wasn’t a one-and-done encounter.

Flying Lotus heads out on the road in April and May.
