Steve Bruner (aka Thundercat) makes music that is hauntingly delicious, presenting a true postmodernist take on jazz and R&B forms. Notable first as a supremely gifted bass player and member of Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder crew, Bruner has played bass for artists like Bilal, Erykah Badu, Kamasi Washington and, most recently, Kendrick Lamar. But his own singular sounds will be the focal point on Friday night. True to his jazz roots, Bruner will no doubt showcase myriad embellishments on the excellent music from his three solo albums, the best of which is the latest — The Beyond/Where the Giants Roam.
