5.0 out of 5 stars Killer Combo, 21 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Shades Of Blue: Madlib Invades Blue Note (Audio CD)
Before you even start listening to this album there are a few things that should be bourne in mind.
1. Madlib is a renowned Hip hop producer.
2. Blue Note is a fantastic label for jazz.
3. The album was produced by Eli and Peanut Butter Wolf.
With these sort of credentials it is hardly surprising that a fantastic album has been produced. It combines some wonderful jazz (I don't pretend to be knowledgeable at all, though I have a few Miles Davis and Coltrane Albums, so I have dipped my toe in the water) with a hip hop flavour, which generally means a bit of lyrics in the background, with the melody of the song remaining intact. The beats are chilled, with some cool bass guitar, double bass, piano and trumpet playing around with the music in a way that only jazz musicians can.
I like albums which I see as progression for music in general, and this is definitely one of them, as is Bobbito Earthtones which I would also advise. This sort of music just gives you a good feeling, firstly because you found it but also because of the tempo of the music itself - just makes you wanna smirk and get down in a modern day James Brown stylee. That's right!
