J Dilla – “Timeless: Suite For Ma Dukes” – [Mochilla]
Brian Cross (aka B+) and Eric Coleman (aka Coleman) are the men behind Mochilla. They are also the masterminds behind this amazing tribute to J Dilla(RIP). And what this is, is a 60 piece orchestra playing the works of J Dilla. Dilla wrote for many artists and was known as a great mc, producer, and jack of all trades in the Hip Hop community. The first CD is the live performance tracks. The second is the dvd of that performance. This release is seminal in really bringing out the essence of hip hop to those who would never be able to pallet Dilla’s original works. A 60 piece orchestra takes on Dilla classics and perform them masterfully. It is hauntingly beautiful to listen to. Read the liner notes for all the musicians featured including some he worked with, and his mother Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey.
