Yoga Lessons from Jesse Abraham, Zilla Rocca and the Wrecking Crew:

Jesse Abraham - Yoga

This past Thursday I headed into NYC to see Zilla Rocca and his Wrecking Crew compatriots perform at DROM. They were opening for a kid I must admit I hadn't checked for previously, Jesse Abraham, who was having an album release party for his new cd I Am Water. Not surprisingly, Zilla, Has-Lo and Curly Castro (who recently signed to signed to Man Bites Dog Records) put on a phenomenal performance, assisted by the turntable work of Nex Millen, a performance that was highlighted by Zilla's re-Imagine-ing of John Lennon's I Found Out and the trio's ode to The Wire, Clay Davis.

What did surprise me, however, was the equally entertaining show put on by Jesse Abraham. My first encounter with Jesse was right before the show, and I didn't really know what to expect from the small dude that spent the majority of the hour before the set darting around the bar while rocking a gray hoodie 8 Mile style. Whatever doubts I may have had were dispelled as soon as he got on stage and took complete control of the audience, projecting way more energy than I would've expected from him. The high point came during his rendition of Yoga while Curly Castro put on a yoga display of his own at the back of the stage, followed up with a lengthy freestyle session over the Informer beat. He went through a few cuts from his new album as well, but the clear standout was his autobiographical Back Off:


Jesse Abraham - Back Off

A portion of the proceeds for I Am Water are being donated to Charity:Water, so if you've got a few spare bucks I highly recommend picking up a copy over at Jesse's Bandcamp page.
