As you may already know, I have somewhat of a soft spot for Millenium Jazz Music , often falling mostly for their tribute albums. With that in mind I don’t think I could have possibly looked past their latest release, Ruff Graft, a homage to the late great Jay Dee. Samples of Dilla music and people speaking on Dilla are interspersed throughout the the Dilla inspired beats. Production on this one come in house from MJM, featuring all the usual suspects; Stay Classy, SmokedBeat, Gadget, RickMal, Bones The Beat Head and DJ Jonny Jazz. I just can’t get enough of these kinds of projects. Enjoy.
We hope you enjoy our little collection, and we encourage you to support the Yancey family and their efforts to keep James’s legacy alive.
