Product Details
Madlib follows Brain Wreck Show with the seventh installment in his Madlib Medicine Show, a jazz album with his Yesterdays New Quintet called High Jazz.

Madlib's been busy this year. And while his recorded output always spans the gamut, he often returns to recurrent themes, spread across the genres that serve as home base - or bases, as it were. Jazz is one such base. This year, he's already released two albums from "spin off bands" that he introduced on the 2007 Yesterdays New Quintet Yesterdays Universe album. And, with High Jazz, Madlib begins anew - offering familiar jazz sounds from a series of "new" groups from his ever-augmenting cosmos. Call it "Yesterdays Galaxy."

High Jazz, the name itself a tribute to the landmark jazz-fusion album released by Stanton Davis's Ghetto Mysticism in 1976, shows a marked development in Madlib's craft. Every element of jazz is there. Is that tune modal-funk? Was that song psych-fusion? Was that a bossa-tinged run or another kind of latin-affair? Where did that sitar come from? Madlib's Yesterdays-excursions are never easy to categorize and that's the point - while experiencing chops like these, the desire to rigidly define takes a back seat to aural pleasure.

The Madlib Medicine Show series is a combination of Madlib's new hip-hop productions, remixes, beat tapes, and jazz, as well as mixtapes of funk, soul, Brazilian, psych, jazz and other undefined forms of music from the Beat Konducta's 4-ton stack of vinyl.

Limited edition 3-disc vinyl: Madlib has collected an additional 30 minutes of music for the limited edition vinyl release of High Jazz. These tracks are not available on the CD or digital release. Album covers will be hand screened by Hit+Run with a design by Jeff Jank, and individually numbered.
