Product Details
Multitalented producer J Rawls is best known for his work in Hip-Hop (producing "Brown Skin Lady" for Black Star, founding indie Hip-Hop favorite Lone Catalysts, releasing albums like last year's The Hip-Hop Affect), but his skills extend far beyond the genre. In 2005 he began to explore neo-soul with The Essence Of Soul, and he's since released two albums from his acclaimed Jazz/Hip-Hop fusion band The Liquid Crystal Project. Now, Rawls is ready to return to the "Jazz Hop" genre he helped create with The Liquid Crystal Project 3, in stores everywhere on April 10th, 2012 via Groove Attack / Polar Ent / Greenstreets.

Like previous Liquid Crystal albums, LC3 explores sounds, beats, and rhythms with jazz instrumentation alongside an undeniable Hip-Hop influence. Tributes to De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest highlight the seamless genre-hopping, which mixes elements of Jazz, Hip-Hop, Soul, Funk, and even Downtempo. "This time we expanded our sound using more musical interpretation and more vibrant sounds," explains Rawls. With production from J Rawls and B Jazz (producer for Eric Roberson, K'naan, etc.), plus a special appearance by onetime George Duke and Ramsey Lewis trumpeter Pharez Whitted, The Liquid Crystal Project 3 is a smooth-like-butter musical experience that defies classification. As Rawls puts it: "It's just good music."
