101 Words: Powerful and Playful — 6 years ago
I don’t know much about hip-hop music but I know what I like. And I like this. A lot. Instrumental hip-hop that wears its influences on its sleeve for all to see: jazz, r&b, and soul. If you’re like mainstream hip-hop music I don’t think you’d like this album, at least, not right away. Compared to a mainstream release, it has more depth and a sense of quirky playfulness that I really appreciated. It’s good background music, but a closer listen really shows you how much work went into the pieces, and how much talent Jay Dee really had. Excellent music.
