Drummer/producer Makaya McCraven brings together "future-is-now drumming” with his roots in jazz and world music to form his unique and powerful sound. Regarded as “one of Chicago’s most versatile and in demand drummers” (Chicago Reader) and described by Downbeat Magazine as “exceptional on the drums,” Makaya McCraven moves between genres at lightning speed. "In The Moment" is nearly 48 hours of live improvised performance recorded at 1 venue over 12 months and 28 shows - culled, cut, rendered, and remixed into 19 potent pieces of organic beat music. This is music made by a 21st century man who sees no need to suppress his hip hop chops or rock spirit in an effort to fit in and be dubbed a jazz drummer.

There is no shortage of all-improvised music events happening in Chicago, but many of them focus on so-called nonidiomatic free improvisation, where the players eschew conventional notions of melody, harmony, and rhythm in search of something decidedly abstract and new. Makaya McCraven seemed to be after something different, at least based on the results turning up on In the Moment, which are unabashedly groove oriented. The drummer meticulously edited and remixed the raw material; you can hear looped passages, bit of room ambience or dialogue reused and jiggered into different pieces, so that the jazz-driven sensibilities of his collaborators are transformed into something that occasionally sounds closer to instrumental hip-hop or taut funk. Among the players that joined the drummer are bassists Matt Ulery, Joshua Abrams, and Junius Paul, trumpeter Marquis Hill, guitarist Jeff Parker, vibist Justin Thomas, and tenor saxophonists De'Sean Jones and Tony Barba.
