J.E.D.I. (Jazz Electronic Dance Improvised) has announced a stacked lineup for its second-annual late-night show during Jazz Fest in New Orleans. The group will blend a myriad of musical elements from a diverse range of genres including jazz, afrobeat, dub, funk, dance and more to create a “live music abstraction” at One Eyed Jacks on Friday, May 3rd at 2:00 AM.J.E.D.I, led by Brazilian Girls co-founder, former David Byrne drummer, and Grammy nominee Aaron Johnston, has brought together a lineup featuring a dual bass attack of Marc Brownstein (The Disco Biscuits) and Nate Edgar (The Nth Power), versatile turntablist DJ Logic, and keyboardist Borahm Lee (Break Science/Pretty Lights Live). Revered mandolinist/violinist Michael Kang and percussionist Jason Hann of The String Cheese Incident will be on hand as special guests after finishing up night two of their three-night run at Mardi Gras World.For Johnston, J.E.D.I. has been a long-time dream that is finally coming into fruition. His diverse musical background and long list of friends and prior collaborators have led to many special nights in J.E.D.I.’s young career. Last year’s performance at Jazz Fest, for example, featured special guest appearances by guitarist Jefferey Lockhart, as well as the entire percussion section from the David Byrne touring band, alongside Jazz Fest staples Eddie Roberts of The New Mastersounds and Ryan Zoidis of Lettuce. The band also has a high-profile show coming up in Denver at the new event, The Big Melt, featuring members of The String Cheese Incident, Thievery Corporation, and more.When asked about J.E.D.I., Johnston explained, “It’s for us and the crowd. An opportunity for us to connect on stage with our friends—who we are fortunate enough to have some of the top musicians around today—and play the music we want to play and experiment with and hopefully really connect with the crowd.”Tickets to J.E.D.I at One Eyed Jacks are on sale NOW at this link.
