A very blue invasion.

Blue Note albums already stand out on their own as either timeless treasures, the foundations of jazz music, or in many cases both. Back in 2003, someone had the genius idea of calling up the now iconic Stones Throw producer Madlib, give him access to some Blue Note classics, and ask him to provide his take on them. The result was a collection of jazz/boom-bap mashups that words simply don’t do justice. There aren’t many traditionally hip-hop producers that can boast also having created a project for Blue Note. Even rarer are those who can claim to have touch or even surpassed the greatness of the original songs themselves. Through Shades of Blue: Madlib Invades Blue Note, Madlib can for sure say these things. And you can for sure bet you need this in your collection!
