Featured Album: ASCENDANT Illuminates again with new album

Share this article
    If there is a word that is most used to describe Chicago-based group ASCENDANT, it is “authentic.” For nearly two decades, the band, consisting of Kael Mboya, Michael Lockett, Curtis Kincaid, Eric Johnson, Kenery Kent Smith, Renée Ruffin, and Donica Lynn, has been wowing audiences with a free flowing blend of R&B, jazz and world-influenced music that is tied together by a keen sense of melody and musicianship.

    It’s been three years since we were blessed with the second installment of the group’s Illuminate series, and now we welcome the third, the 7-song Illuminate: Yellow. Featuring the SoulTracks Readers’ Choice Award nominated single “It’s Not Over” (featuring Angela Johnson), Illuminate: Yellow is another tasty collection that is awe-inspiring in its breadth, both stylistically and in mood.
