    The legendary Steinski (the godfather of cut-n-paste) gets a multi-second guest spot!...

    Hot dignity daffodils! Madlib'd got mad respect for his elders (hip hop AND jazz)

    Does my heart good... And the album's mighty good, too!

      This album is blowing my brain cells into tiny little snare hits.
      Get it. Now.
      do it.

        MadLib Shades Of Blue / MadLib Invades Blue Note (Jazz / Hip Hop –UKLP/CD)

        A major Blue Note remix project of this kind would have been unthinkable not too long ago, but keys were handed over, and vaults unlocked…
        Artists such as Donald Byrd, Gene Harris, Ronnie Foster, Bobbi Humphries, and Horace Silver have gotten taken back to the streets; courtesy of LA’s most prolific, MadLib.
        What’s here is essentially a 16 track Hip Hop / jazz fused introduction to a whole new audience, who might not know just how musically important the Blue Note label is.
        Reimagining, remixing and rebuilding these timeless classics to such a high standard deserves awards, and definitely gets my vote – A heavy piece.
