14-08 is the first pre-single of JJ Whitefield’s solo debut album „Brother All Alone“. On the new German Neo-Jazz label Kryptox/ K7. Guitarist and producer JJ Whitefield is kind of a legend to many funk, hip hop and afro connoisseurs around the world. Before joining the Kryptox label he released albums on Ninja Tune, Stones Throw, Now Again, Daptone with his bands Karl Hector & The Malcouns, Poets of Rhythm, Whitefield, Rodinia.

He also was the band leader and co-produced the two come back albums of Ebo Taylor for Strut records. The German multitalent has been living in San Francisco many years before coming back to Germany and now recording Brother All Alone - an Jazz Funk album with some of the best young heads from the new Berlin Hipster Jazz scene. The album could make some waves as Whitefield has prominent fans all over the world: From L.A. guys like Madlib, DJ Shadow, Dan Auerbach or Kemasi to UK Jazz heads around Gilles Peterson scene. Many of the albums of his former bands are cult. So this next step in his carrier could get some attention too
