Percussionist Amaury Acosta, aka King Klave in his solo work and co-leader of the group (U)nity, recently dropped by the Congahead studios with friends trumpeter Keyon Harrold, keyboardist Javier Santiago, and a fresh new composition for the three of them to jam called “Beauty” that certainly fits its description. It’s always a delight to hear what’s new coming from Acosta, and this tune is no different. Give it some love below.
