The seventh installment in his Madlib Medicine Show, a jazz album with his Yesterdays New Quintet called High Jazz. MadlibÕs 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 Ð or bases, as it were. Jazz is one such base.. With High Jazz, Madlib begins anew Ð offering familiar jazz sounds from a series of ÒnewÓ groups from his ever-augmenting cosmos. Call it ÒYesterdays Galaxy.Ó High Jazz, the name itself a tribute to the landmark jazz-fusion album released by Stanton DavisÕs Ghetto Mysticism in 1976, shows a marked development in MadlibÕs 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? MadlibÕs Yesterdays-excursions are never easy to categorize and thatÕs the point Ð while experiencing chops like these, the desire to rigidly define takes a back seat to aural pleasure.
