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.

Comment: I'm almost unsure on how to give my opinion on this medicine show. It was the final one I listened to out of the series (i copped em all not in order) and was hoping for a bang, but it certainly didnt do that. I've always hated madlibs taste in jazz, personal preferance but still. Im not sure if he mixed these beats or made them himself with his jazz band that I know little about, but this was pretty "okay". It was better than #8 to me. Actually this album doesnt even sound like jazz, more like of a jazz with a trance vibe. It was well pieced together but not my favorite by any means.

Comment: The problem still is. Most people don't understand Madlib in his music way. He started as a jazz musician creating sort of breaks. Some of the breaks sounded hip-hopish and he's friends like Wildchild and DJ Romes askt him to do some hip-hop thing. That's when he started creating hip-hop beats. This way of Madlib music never gets any credits because hip-hop minded people don't like this music. Top album by the way. Madlib Medicine show is really great and stop frontin' cause he's one of the last real producers out their. While Premier & Pete Rock loosing quality Madlib is still focused on good music. Nuff said

Comment: if only u could give a zero rating on this mo'fo. madlib be releasing too much sh*t with little to zero effect. he needs to slow down and work on a hardcore album. this medicine show sh*t is making people sick instead of curing the need for some underground bangers

Comment: Taking it further with this one. Yesterday New Quintet's previous realeses didn't really catch my attention. This one is their best attempt so far. These are no doubt talented and boundary-breaking muscians with no regards for the mainstream. This is both good and bad, good when they create new stuff and bad when it takes it's oddest forms. I think this album manages to balance out these opposites. Madlib prooves that he masters rhythms in all areas. It would be nice to have him focus more on quality than quantity in the future though, a few of the medecine records are not as strong as this one. Big-up for the attempt to launch a new way of displaying different rhythm based genre's! Artwork is always fly.

Comment: Some dudes don't like to see a talented black man master other area's of music other than Hip Hop. If Madlib started to coon out these hater's would be all on his nuts. I notice everyone on this message boards, you have lame ass comments dissing the solid hard working Emcee's and Producer's. Then you have these no name entertainer's/rappers who get this deals and release crap, nothing close to what Madlib is doing. The black man will shine no matter what he has talent and he has proven he is solid.

Comment: yo dont pay no attention to him he (LARS) is still rocking mc hammer pants. yo lars jus stop hating on real artist yo if you like people who never drop albums and jus mixtapes then thats your right but we like authentic hip hop so the people who check for this stuff really wanna know about the product and it matters what the blogger are sayin for a decision of purchase so stop killing good hip hop and turn off your radio. insults to you seem to dont work so im askin jus stop the maddness and be a little bit more mature about your commnets cuz it seems your knowledge doesnt run long enough with hip hop to have an opinion on album based artist like madlib plus dude is an musician doesnt just do hip hop atleast you could respect that in him now thats (realshyt) fuck those out there faking it and you know who you all my people outthere keep it hip hop and good listenin
