Sly5thAve - 'The Invisible Man: An Orchestral Tribute To Dr Dre'
Performed with a full orchestra, including members such as Grammy award winning keyboardist Cory Henry, Quantic Music, Eric Coleman, Jesse Fischer, Mark de Clive-Lowe, Melissa McMillan, Jimetta Rose & many more.
This recording is the result of a concert assembled by Sly5thAve aka Sylvester Onyejiaka, Eric Coleman (Mochilla) and Kentyah Fraser – who brought in Playing For Change, the non-profit music charity – and was dedicated to building a music school in Compton. Taking place at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre, some of L.A.’s finest musicians performed at the “Cali-Love” show which was attended by Dr. Dre–who took to the stage to congratulate Sly5thAve’s arrangements –and over 1,200 people who witnessed the first taste of Sly5thAve’s orchestral tribute to Dr. Dre’s legacy.
"Hip Hop has always been music for the people. An anthemic account of history from the other side, it gave a much louder voice to a whole generation and class of people who most folks would have like to ignore." - Sylvester Onyejiaka (Sly5thAve)
