In what is apparently one of the sleeper hip hop/jazz albums to hit your shelves in ages, The Jazz Liberatorz is a fantastic performance.
Insanely dope jazz beats and surprisingly erudite rhymes from each and every performer make this something to desperately get your hands on.
Featuring a pretty stellar cast of emcees, everyone from J. Sands of the Lone Catalysts to Buckshot, J. Live, and Sadat X brings their best performances. I’ve heard a lot of these emcees put out less than stellar tracks in the past, but this is by no means even close to that.
From the sounds of it, the Jazz Liberatorz are three dope beatmakers from France who somehow assembled an all-star cast of underground talent to put together a nearly flawless album. DJ Damage, Dusty and Madhi (the Jazz Liberatorz) have also included some dope songstresses to add a little flavour to the album, so there’s a little something for everyone.
If you want, you can stream a lot of the album from the MySpace link at the top of this post.
Here’s Ease My Mind, f. Tre Hardson, Fat Lip and Omni.
You can buy this album off iTunes for $10, and it’s absolutely worth it.
