None of it really. I'm sure it was fun to make, and it's a nice idea, but it's not great jazz.

Thought I don't entirely hate it, so I'd probably have to go with Monk Hughes. He was on some Black Jazz, spiritual shit then.

angles without edges is amazing, one of the most innovative albums i had heard in awhile

the joe mcduphrey experience ep is probably my favorite though. its real laid back. listen to "solar waves" or "tomorrow, yesterday"

I agree... haha. Except I am feelin' all of them. Monk has my vote for best, I just feel the vibe on it most. Angles is a close second though.

Angles Without Edges (the first album) - i think about half of that album is excellent, the the other half very good. Some of the more recent stuff like Otis Jackson Trio & tracks off Yesterdays Universe have been just as exciting, but noting as consistent as Angles


We're in agreement. Second best is Yesterday's Universe.

madlibs really grown as a musician, and Yesterdays Universe was probably my favourite album of last year. Although, I really wish he would still keep the hip hop in the project like he did with angel without edges, as the jazz/hip hop fusion was the most interesting part of the project. In contrast to now where its just straight jazz/funk. bring back the sp!

word.

the big chunky drums of angels and its fusion with jazz was what made that album ultra interesting.

yeah, I'd have to say Angles is my favorite YNQ album, with YU as a close second.

but this Last Electro-Acoustic album has me hyped, they need to release that soon.

The Original release of 'Stevie' Vol.1 promo is probably the one I listened to and enjoyed most. I was Stevie Wonder daft at the time it came out. Second would be The 'Bomb Shelter' 7" and thirdly Ahmad Miller's 'Say Ah!' ep for "Windy C" alone.

Uno Esta EP, Ugly/Beauty and Ahmad's First are my favorites... but yeah most of the YNQ stuff is great. The only album i didn't like was Stevie.

Man, can you people stop complaining about Stevie? ;)
As an album I don't think it holds up, but That Girl is worth your money alone! ^_^

How different was the Vol 1 promo from what was released?

Since it was so nice out, I threw Angles Without Edges on and I'm still noticing subtle new sounds happening in the background. This album amazes me to this day!

sorry if this has already been discussed...

 

but just picked up the "From LA with Love" compilation and noticed a couple YNQ and Sound Directions tracks I never heard before: http://www.discogs.c...release/2060570

 

anyone know if these tracks appear elsewhere?

I'm pretty sure those are exclusive to that comp. I've been wanting that record for years, good job finding a copy.

And it's a pretty good compilation too. Even though I bought it just for the madlib tracks, there's definitely more interesting stuff on there, unlike the Dublab Freeways comp, which has a great YNQ track on it but unfortunately has absolutely nothing else I can find any merit in. far too glitchy for my tastes.

 

Otherwise there are a couple of YNQ tracks in the Ubiquity Records Rewind series of compilations that're well worth copping, both available on 12" too.

http://www.discogs.c...2/release/51400

http://www.discogs.c...2/master/375863

The PPP track on that 2nd 12" is fucking awesome too. I think Waajeed is way underrated.

Isn't that the muthafuckin' TRUTH!!

I got all excited when ST released that Green Eyed Love 12" in '10 with the Jeedo remix. I thought it was a sign of things to come with the two linking up for more releases but sadly nothing more has dropped with the ST seal of approval.

btw, thanks for the heads up on those other comps, I wasn't aware of the Ubiquity releases at all.
