New Jazz-Dub Composition: "Checkers Champion" by Austin Kimble

As a pianist who was formally trained in both in classical music and jazz, I often collaborate with other musicians who specialize in a great variety of musical genres, bringing in my own musical experience to create something unique and beautiful.  One of my favorite radio DJ's in Austin, DJ-RJ (KAZI 88.7 FM), and I collaborated to compose, record, and produce this fantastic piece of dub.

I hope you enjoy this instrumental reggae, spacey, jazzy, tune you may one day hear as the ending credits of a summer blockbuster begin to roll.  "Checkers Champion" is named in honor of keyboardist/composer Austin Kimble's grandfather, James S. Spencer, who, many years ago, was a State Champion in Missouri in the game of... you guessed it: Checkers!
