WORD! (64 minutes)
We're bending a few corners with this mix: an exploration of poetry, scat, spoken word, cadence, and even rap in jazz-n-groove. From jazz scat and spoken word to reggae, afro-funk and early jazz rap in the 70's right on thru to the modern phusion of jazz, cadence, and electronics. Word to your mother!

i got my vinyl copy of the Co-Real Artists single at http://www.dustygroove.com/.
"What about you" is great, but the instrumental "Bound by the blood" on the flip is even better!
Seek it out.

Hey Chris - I am digging the word stuff. I think I recall that Branford Marsalis has done some neat crossover stuff with hip-hop, poetry, and other things.
