Kamasi Washington’s Epic is by far my favorite album of the year at the moment, so this is a must. Details below.

Kamasi Washington (saxophone) and Miles Mosley (bass) improvise a tune live in Cosmic Zoo studios before having a long conversation with Intuition on the Kinda Neat podcast.

This is a Jazz Cover of a Great Song that is meant to help smooth out your day.

 
Amen, it worked.
 
Smooth jazz covers of rap songs are really where it’s at, fuck you if you don’t agree and see HERE for additional proof. I’ve listened to this about 40 times today now, still didn’t get old.
 
You can download this via Dr Greg Shaw‘s Reverbnation page. S/o to digger extraordinaire ANU for the find and Moneyworth for the mix linked above.

Their best album yet. They’ve really come a long way, their original material now handily outshines the early covers that got them noticed.
 

 

Mo Kolours – Child’s Play

New Mo Kolours single, leaning to the hip-hop side of things. Some strong similarities to Dilla and Madlib in this, but it still maintains Mo Kolour’s own special blend of pan-ethnic influences. I can see this guy’s album sounding like the world music version of Donuts, in the best way.

Good mix showcasing both Madlib’s crate digging and his production skills, with particular focus on fuzzy psychedelic funk and some of his upcoming/long-promised rap releases. The exclusive rap stuff happens at about 31 mins in, if you just want to hear some new Mad-Doom-Gibbs.
