Sound Directions | The Funky Side Of Life
Four years ago, the hip-hop producer Madlib built his own jazz sandbox: a half-instrumental, half-sampled project he called Yesterday's New Quintet that played a spaced-out version of early 70's hazz funk. He played all the parts himself...but now that he has hired great studio musicians- including Malcolm Catto, a much better drummer- and renamed the band Sound Directions, things are looking up. This new album, The Funky Side Of Life (Stones Throw) has dense, delirious grooves, perhaps despite the fact that it's also serious record-junkie stuff." - Ben Ratliff, New York Times
