JAZZ IS DEAD
Jazz Is Dead is Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad's joint venture project where for #5 they recruit Spiritual Funk/Jazz Innovator Doug Carn for this distinctive Jazz-Hip Hop-Funk-Noir Record.
Carn's newest project, his entry in the Jazz Is Dead album series helmed by Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad, takes his unique and timeless art and places it within the context of a musical culture that has always taken cues from his ‘70s classics. There's no mistaking the musical mind that created legendary albums like Infant Eyes and Adam's Apple, but the encounter of that with the distinctive jazz-hip hop-funk-noir that is the Younge/Muhammad/JID trademark creates something worthy of comparison to Carn's past work but which could only have been made right now.
One can detect nods to musical motifs by Carn's jazz peers that have served as frequent sample fodder, but his compositional and improvisational integrity remain indisputable throughout.
