Thread: Hip Hop/Rap w/ Jazz

    Default Hip Hop/Rap w/ Jazz

    Please move it to the right place if it's wrong.

    Hi,

    I'm searching for some groups than use Hip Hop or Rap with >Jazz<...
    Sometimes i listen great stuff but i've never found the group's name...

    It (should, if possible)) have vocal, piano (and sometimes vibraphone), drums, and sax... It has hip hop groove but with the great jazz harmonic and improvisational concepts... i've already listen some great fusion on this subject but all i kind find is bad groups/music.

    Can you share some names to direct me somehow..?

    Thanks

    Thank you! great stuff, it's what i was lookin' for... (although i don't like to hear him playing 'all the time' - it may change on the future of course)...
    I like this clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zASE...eature=related

    Check out Miles Davis "DooBop"

    Also, I have a tune called "Inner Man" Check it out (Song 12 I think)

    I am going to be involved in studio project called "The Freedom Fusion Project", and there will be some HipHop on that as well.

    I am not big on Rapp, but have good music in the backround makes it that much better!

    Here's a Beyonce cover. I guess it would be R&B/ Hip Hop:
