Any opinons on this new release? It features Christian McBride on bass, Ahmir Thompson on the drums, and Uri Cane on keys. Ahmir is the drummer for The Roots, D'angelo, and just about every modern hip-hop artist using live drums. The guy can sound exactly like a drum machine or a loop with live drums. Kinda hard to explain, but he sounds great. Christian sounds cool too. I haven't had a chance to really listen to it much, but it is a great fusion of Jazz/Soul/instrumental Hip-Hop >something new. Funky drums with almost no fills, Heavy, funky, and powerful bass(usually Octave divided, enveloped, or delayed fretless. But also arco acoustic and clean.), and colorful keyboard textures.
