BBNG by Badbadnotgood (2011)
Kind of Like: The Odd Trio, Death Grips, Colin Stetson
Genres: Jazz, Hip-hop, Experimental
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.
