Roy Ayers, Ali Shaheed Muhammad & Adrian Younge – Jazz Is Dead 2 (Jazz Is Dead)

Vibraphone player Roy Ayers teams up with two iconic hip-hop producers for an interesting collaboration containing elements of jazz, R&B, and hip-hop. The tracks flow together smoothly featuring excellent vocals in most songs and hypnotic rhythms. The album is somewhat mellow, sounds excellent at night, and ironically helps prove that jazz is indeed not dead.  Try: 1, 6, 7, 8 ALL RIYL: Gary Bartz, Joel Ross, Erykah Badu, Makaya McCraven, Nubya Garcia FCC: None
