Jahari Massamba Unit - Pardon My French
Record Store Day Black Friday 2020 release.
MadlibÍs All New Jazz Project Debuting On RSD Black Friday In An Exclusive Colored Vinyl Pressing. The Jahari Massamba Unit features Madlib on all instrumentation with the exception of drums, which are laid down by Karriem Riggins. Like Madlib, Riggins is well-versed in both the worlds of Jazz and Hip Hop. Musically, MadlibÍs label says ñwe would call the project Spiritual Jazz, but jazz great Phil Ranelin told us to call it Black Classical Music, so thatÍs what weÍre going with it.î This is an album put together by students of jazz in its myriad and historic corms who are also proponents of jazzÍs future. The resulting recording reflects a lifetime of record collecting, musical study, woodshedding, and a reverential respect for one anotherÍs craft. Regardless of categorization this is an exciting an all new entry in MadlibÍs Yesterdays New Quintet canon of difficult to categorize music. Pardon My French debuts on RSD Black Friday in an exclusive colored vinyl pressing.
