Headliner-
Kassa Overall is, as Time Out New York puts it, “a Renaissance man: part chopsy, super-funky jazz drummer, and part rising producer-MC.”  Since its January release date, his debut album, “Go Get Ice Cream and Listen to Jazz” has earned rave reviews from The New York TimesAfropunkWBGOWNYCKNKX, and JAZZIZ.  "It’s one of the few genuine-sounding, full-scope amalgams of contemporary hip-hop and jazz to surface in recent years” wrote Giovanni Russonello of the NYTimes in January, while Tarik Moody of the NPR show Sound Opinions called it “probably the most refreshing release of this year."
Kassa is currently an artist in residence at the Jazz Gallery in New York City with his “Time Capsule” project, which has featured some of the finest names in jazz piano, including Jon Batiste, Jason Moran, Craig Taborn, and Aaron Parks.  Aside from his own work, Kassa is currently working as a spoken word and laptop artist with drummer Terri Lyne Carrington's Social Science, drumming with singer Carmen Lundy, and producing as well as drumming with Arto Lindsay.  While percussion is his main focus, Overall has a passion for electronic-based production and often incorporates the use of laptops and samplers into his music. He’s performed with a formidable list of artists, including Christian McBride, Donald Byrd, Vijay Iyer, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Terri Lyne Carrington, Francis & the Lights, Yoko Ono, Marc Ribot, Mayer Hawthorne, Wallace Roney, Ravi Coltrane, Gary Bartz, and many more. He spent several years as a key member of pianist Geri Allen's Timeline band and appears regularly with trumpeter Theo Croker (whose last album he co-produced). As a rapper and producer, Overall has collaborated with the hip-hop outfit Das Racist, and is a member of the duo Kool & Kass with former Das Racist member Kool A.D. He also DJs on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert's house band, Jon Batiste & Stay Human.
