Yussef Dayes will release a new live album.

The Yussef Dayes Experience (Live from Malibu) features music from his debut solo album, Black Classical Music, released last year on Brownswood Recordings, and more. Across 19 tracks, the album was anchored by Dayes’ distinctive drum licks and Rocco Palladino’s bass.

Across eight tracks on Live from Malibu, Dayes is joined once again by Palladino, plus long time collaborators Venna, Elijah Fox, and Alexander Bourt. The set was originally shared as a live-performance video filmed in the Malibu mountains last year and is available on YouTube.

Dayes was also one half of Yussef Kamaal with keyboardist Kamaal Williams.
