Review

Hip-hop/jazzers Us3 have forged the most elaborate union between the styles since the early days of Gang Starr and A Tribe Called Quest. Blue Note's vast catalog gives them a huge advantage over several similar groups in terms of source material. Classic sounds by Art Blakey, Horace Silver and Herbie Hancock provide zest and fiber to their narratives. When words and music mesh, as on "Cantaloop" or "The Darkside," Us3 show how effectively hip-hop and jazz can blend.

US3:
Mel Simpson - keyboards (programming)
Geoff Wilkinson - (samples, scratches, programming)
