The definition of a supergroup.

I love Robert Glasper’s work with KAYTRANADA, and I gotta say his production sounds even better on this record. And then of course there’s Kamasi on the saxophone. He’s remarkable, which doesn’t mean that this is an album full of jazz with saxophone solos spotlighted. It’s a blend of hip hop, soul and jazz, which Kamasi’s solos round off perfectly. And the fact they got Phoelix to sing on half of the songs. Such a good addition, his smooth voice adds just the right amount of RnB to the tracks. Especially Love You Bad stands out with it’s beat sounding surprisingly off. After a few seconds though, it sounds weirdly catchy and authentic. Some songs just feel like room fillers though, like From My Heart and My Soul. But, as the album and band name suggests, these are songs for a dinner party, which they’re perfectly suitable for.

A very well produced mix of jazz and RnB that’s perfect for the after hours and showcases each of this fantastic supergroup’s members’ talents.

Favorite tracks: Love You Bad, First Responders, Freeze Tag, LUV U

This review is based on my listening experience using a custom built U-Turn Orbit turntable with a built in Pluto amplifier & a Ortofon 2M Red cartridge paired with Edifier R2000db powered speakers.

I’m not an audiophile by any stretch of the imagination but I’m an aspiring one.

This is a good pressing, better than I expected considering the horror stories I’ve heard about the pressing manufacturer (GZ Media) for this joint. Overall, no major issues that distract from the music.

As for the music, this is a classic hip hop/jazz fusion record. I love rap but I actually believe this is a better version than its Dessert Party counterpart that replaces much of the vocals/melodic vibe for rap verses.

There’s even some timely commentary (Freeze Tag + it’s accompanying music video). Overall, I agree with other reviewers, this IS a dinner party record. Can’t wait for Covid to pass, because this is first up when we reopen our home for guests.

What a lineup from some of the best in hip-hop, jazz and neo-soul. Strangely enough, this album popped up on a random Spotify binge (Thanks algorithm!), so immediately, I needed to snatch it. It's not worth the Discogs prices, seriously, I see this going for above $20. Get outta here. Pressing is awesome too, as others have said...lots of bass!

Great Album! Fantastic pressing. Great encounter of contemporary, jazzy hip hop.

A lovely (if a little bit short) album of contemporary, jazzy hip hop grooves. That as the title suggests, is just so ideal, to listen to when you are throwing a dinner party. But please, I must urge you during these times, to host your dinner party outdoors, with no more than 10 guests. If you disobey, you might be put in prison by the police. Then you won’t be able to listen to this nice album anymore and by the time you are released, all the tasty food will be all cold and have flies on it, and you will be very sad!!

This pressing is fantastic. Audiophile quality at a low price! Super clear and clean - you can hear everything! Sax sounds especially good. Love the heavy bass. To my ears (and on my setup), it’s emphasized, but not overpowering. Suits the album really well. The sound is phenomenal. Dynamics are on point. Stellar production and mastering on this. Curious to see how it compares to the VMP press. I seriously doubt the VMP press will sound this good, but I could be wrong. Such an underrated album rn. Vibes for days. Surprised more ppl don’t want this. What a supergroup! Every track is a banger, except the last one (Luv U). Just not enough development on that one. Feels awkward to me. I think they should’ve left it off the album (maybe just used it as a B-side on a 7” single release of Freeze Tag) and ended with Freeze Tag. Definitely looking forward to more from Dinner Party!
