Skyzoo samarbetar med jazzband för nya albumet “The Bluest Note”



Förra året släppte Brooklyn-rapparen Skyzoo albumet “Retropolitan” med legendariske producenten Pete Rock. Det var ett projekt som han kunde kryssa av sin “bucket list”. Nu kommer ytterligare ett projekt på den listan, när han i dagarna släpper nya albumet “The Bluest Note” med jazzbandet Dumbo Station från italienska huvudstaden Rom. I ett pressmeddelande förklarar Skyzoo:


“Since my debut album, I’ve never released a project that didn’t include a moment of jazz influence; with some sort of live instrumentation, something that connected my lyricism with the truest definition of musical lyricism; jazz. As much as I’ve incorporated my favorite genre of music with my other favorite genre of music, this is the first time I’ve been able to craft an entire project based on jazz production from top to bottom” Skyzoo quipped. “The Bluest Note is a testament to something I’d been longing to do for as far back as I can remember.”



Skyzoo beskriver även processen bakom projektet med jazzbandet


“Collaborating with Italy’s renowned jazz band Dumbo Station was an absolute honor. From writing musical arrangements with them and having them bring them to life in the studio in Rome, Italy; it was a perfect union and execution of what I foresaw when I began to sketch out the project. Six songs, as an homage to the classic jazz albums of the genre’s heyday (when LPs were around six tracks total). The Bluest Note is the storytelling and inner-city expressions you’ve come to know and love from me, attached to the jazz orchestration I’m dying to introduce to some and re-introduce to others. Ladies and gentlemen, this is, The Bluest Note…”
