The roots of the Detroit sound were brought back to the future by DJ/producer Carl Craig, Philadelphia Experiment producer Aaron Luis Levinson, and hip hop producer Karriem Riggins, who together recorded the band over a period of five days at the legendary White Room Studio in downtown Detroit. The result are spellbinding, mind-blowing, and a true testament to the musical legacy of Detroit.
I like this one - a lot

"I like surprises. I like things that zig and zag in unexpected but pleasant ways. I'm not a purist. I think that mixing contrasting elements lends interest and excitement.I'm not a big jazz fan, but I'm finding that if you give jazz a good groove, I like it.All this is background for my opinion that this is an outstanding collection. Each piece stands on it's own, contrasts nicely with the other entries without any (to me) jarring discordancies, and internally, nicely contrasts the sophistication of jazz compositional elements with more contemporary rhythmic and production influences in varying degrees; some tracks the jazz influence predominates, on others the hip-hop or techno influences come to the fore.I agree with another reviewer that the Amp Fiddler track sounds like "Stevie Wonder on a ... drug trip", but to be honest, it's the kind of zig or zag that I think makes this CD very entertaining and enjoyable."
