series of albums - it's a studio collective of players who perform hip-hop tunes as jazz, with open sections for solos and super-deep pockets to groove in.
Hidden Beach is some of my favorite stuff to listen to - I'll spin it any ol' time!
Oh yeah. Any hip-hop song with a jazzy tone to it grabs my attention. Groups like the Digable Planets, A Tribe Called quest, and many many others I can't think of off the top of my head now are my top favs.
