This work led him to be co-writer and background vocalist on JC Brooks's Red, Black and Blue EP (2018) and featured vocalist on visionary composer and flutist Nicole Mitchell's Mandorla Awakening II: Emerging Worlds (FPE Records, 2017), which was named #1 jazz album of the year in the New York Times and placed in the top 5 of the NPR Jazz Critics Poll.
