Just picked up the new Roy Hargrove CD "Hard Groove." This was recorded with his jazz/hip-hop/soul band called The RH Factor. After listening through the whole CD once, I must say it is one of the best discs I have purchased this year. Pino Palladino and Reggie Washington are the two main bassists, along with a special guest spot featuring Meshell Ndegeocello. The three of them lay down some very tasty grooves. Other artists on the album include Common, Erykah Badu, Steve Coleman, D'Angelo, and Q-Tip. That Hargrove guy is blowin' pretty hard throughout the CD, too. I definately reccomend checking this one out.
