Over the course of his 36-year career, he’s never stopped evolving and switching genres, even when it means doing an about-face on the success he attained before. He could have easily built on the template established with his hit “The Way It Is” and the homegrown style that immediately followed, but chose instead to shift direction with Here Come the Noisemakers, an album that found him piercing his previous parameters and delving into jazz, jam band, and even some classical conceits.

Flicted evolved out of two previous efforts, AbsoluteZero and Non-Secure Connection, completing a trilogy of sorts inspired by film “cues” written and recorded for Spike Lee while also delving deeply into thought, philosophy, and meditation, as shared in the majority of the album’s songs.

This latest studio offering from the ivory tickling minstrel, continues his dexterous ways with a formidable collection of material that challenges the listener, without being too overbearing, and is bolstered by a fresh batch of inspiring collaborations with some of today’s most prominent musicians, including Ezra Koenig (Vampire Weekend) and Danielle Haim (Haim).
