[ONE MAN, ONE DRUM] Fusing jazz and hip-hop is a noble goal, and one that is at the forefront of the mind of Zach Saginaw, aka Shigeto. His latest album, No Better Time Than Now, opens with organ chords and vinyl crackling so loud it sounds like rain. Twinkling arpeggios slowly build. Fuzz washes in. Seconds later, the song climaxes Alice Coltrane-style, and then the beat to “Detroit Part 1” drops. It’s a swaying shuffle a la Flying Lotus and Madlib and their imitators, but Shigeto isn’t just another pretender to that throne. What sets him apart is his performance, where he sits at a drum set, bringing the wonk to life and leaning over to tweak the electronic parts on his laptop. He’s frantically energetic, even when his music isn’t.
