“TrapHouseJazz” artist Masego has reintroduced himself with the funky and prattling, “Lady Lady.” Produced by TDE's Sounwave, the record takes all the free jazz features from Sego’s 2016 Loose Thoughts EP and cooks them down to their essential and soulful elements.

On “Lady Lady,” the Norfolk, Virginia native's erratic song structures, self-taught instrumental breaks, and sinuous singing are all on display. Over a bed of plucky and taut guitar notes, Masego ducks and dives around the melody, with the high notes soaring. His delivery affects a sultry and flirtatious tone that plays as winding, but not too heavy.

As the words “lady lady” reverberate into the rich saxophone for an intimate call and response session, we’re reminded that Masego is more than a crooning loverboy; he’s a roving jazzman with an ear for craft and undeniable panache.

With Masego’s debut album on the way, “Lady Lady” acts as a crash course in his sonic past and a promising look at his eclectic sonic future.
