AF the Naysayer Searches for His People

In 2013, “Dolo Jazz Suite” events started showing up on Facebook. It wasn’t clear what a Dolo Jazz Suite was, though a quick check on YouTube revealed that it was more hip-hop than jazz. Or maybe not, according to Amahl Abdul-Khaliq, who performs as AF THE NAYSAYER (all caps, according to his website).

“‘Dolo’ is New York for slang for ‘myself’,” he says. “It’s a play on words: Dolo jazz—jazz for one’s self.”
