Essence Jazz Testament totally got me hooked in 1995 from the Jumping Jack Frost Dreamscape 11 set. Blew me away at the time with the jazzed out solo in the middle.
Took me a couple of years before I owned it but I often find it in my head still along with MC Mad P's lyrics. Such a total classic, the way it just rolls out, a few elements, that's all it needs. Then there's that sax breakdown - I assume its not a sample. Spectacular and so out there at the time as not many producers were putting anywhere near that level of real played music into their tunes. Just works so well and highly unique!
