BBNG by Badbadnotgood (2011)

Kind of Like: The Odd Trio, Death Grips, Colin Stetson
Genres: Jazz, Hip-hop, Experimental
Preview: Bandcamp

Now for something different...

Hip-hop is notorious for sampling jazz in its songs.  A Tribe Called Quest, J Dilla, The Roots, Madlib; the list goes on and on and on.  These guys, Badbadnotgood, are a jazz band from Toronto that have switched things around.  They are reworking classic hip-hop songs into jazz songs, and the results are some seriously awesome jams and improvisations.  There is some great musicianship shown here.
