Album Review

Last Electro-acoustic Space Jazz & Percussion Ensemble, The – “Miles Away” – [Stones Throw]

humana   8/13/2010   12-inch, Jazz

He slices, he dices, he plays acoustic piano, guitars, harp, moog, synth, congas, tambourine, drums, electric flute, electric bass, fretless bass, Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer, sitar, vibraphone, organ, and accordion. It???s DJ/producer Madlib, a.k.a. Otis Jackson Jr., in an outing as a one-man-band going undercover as an ensemble in order to realize the jazz side of his nature. This double album is a tribute to obscure and famous jazz musicians from decades past. It???s easy on the ears with its smooth, Latin rhythms and beats. Most of the songs have intros and outros that give the entire production a seamless feeling of being in a funky jazz dream. Entirely pleasant and will indeed transport you ???miles away.???
