As time passes, the boundaries of music genres keep getting broken down. Trumpeter Keyon Harrold is someone whose music traverses the sonic spectrum and he gives voice to that wandering spirit on his single “Wayfaring Traveler,” off his forthcoming album The Mugican. The meditative track features Robert Glasper, Georgia Anne Muldrow, and Jermaine Holmes, with lyrics about finding truth in the complex, meandering paths of life. With pulsing production and understated yet soulful trumpet lines weaving through the mix, the song offers a seamless blend of stirring music and engaging lyrics. “Wayfaring Traveler” proves that Harrold is an artist always pushing music forward, and we had better take note.
