Who the hell is this man?!
Neither Elton John knows what means doin so many collaborations…
Well with this album you get a traditional Jazz trumpeter composing and arranging a straight up Jazz album with a taste of Hip Hop spirit.
As with the other previous outings, the R to the H flexes his connections with more all-star collabos than an over-produced rapper that can’t come up with enough flow or material to do an album on their own two. Ah, but Hargrove does the combos justice, rarely missing.
Hope this album will get your gloving report!
