Former Kids These Days trumpeter Nico Segal rounds up his Chi-Town cronies for the video to his own rendition of Lauryn Hill’s “To Zion.”

“Lauryn Hill is easily one of my favorite and most influential artists of all time. I love that song. It’s the only cover on the whole project and it doesn’t sound like her song at all. I reharmonized the chords and I play her melody on the trumpet as if I was singing.”

Take a listen to the jazzy track, beautifully flipped by Nico’s brass. His mixtape, Donnie Trumpet, is due on June 25. —Shannon Powell
