i gave this a spin last night and it was pretty damn good. they jump from track-to-track with precision and the right amount of Dilla swagger, all with a light jazz touch. everyone sounds talented on their respective instrument, and together they bring the legacy of Dilla to life with a performance that i’m sure the man himself woulda co-signed. nicely done.
