Silenced is a project by Donald Sturge Anthony McKenzie II playing improvised/one take duos with legendary musicians. This second volume features duets with Elliott Sharp, Vernon Reid, and Bill Laswell.

"In Silenced Donald Sturge Anthony McKenzie II has reconnected contemporary improvisational music to one of the most crucial & controversial issues facing us today - the misuse of lethal force by those sworn to Serve & Protect ALL of us. I am proud to be amongst the artists participating in this remarkable project”. - Vernon Reid

“Improvising in duo with master drummer Don McKenzie is a heart-to-heart conversation at hypersonic speeds and simultaneously accessing fantastic theory, earthy humor, and the news of the day. As a player, always unpredictable and always gripping”. - Elliott Sharp
