Gypsy Eyes - The Jazz Jousters Podcast series #1

As a member of Millennium Jazz and the Jazz Jousters group, I was inspired to present a selection of first quality Jazz Hip Hop beats and tracks. As a lifetime jazz lover, I view Jazz Hip Hop as a springboard to keep Hip Hop fresh and Jazz alive and current. I'll be followed by other Jazz Jousters members in the coming weeks. Please check them out too and see where our diverse backgrounds and personalities lead us all. 

Peace ♥

The Jazz Jousters - Lab Off #1 - Chet Baker Tributes

Almost Blue’ is an EP in tribute to the great Chet Baker from the members of Millennium Jazz’s online community that is the Jazz Jousters group. With their shared love of Jazzhop and Jazz orientated music the group was inspired by Chet Baker’s ‘Almost Blue’ and decided to have a lab off session using the classic song as a sample.

The project features versions from the likes of international beatsmiths such as, Mr. Moods, DRTYDRDZ, Joe Davies, Blue Buttonz, Gadget & B 3 N B I who all bring various ingredients and leave us with this flavorful little dish on the table for the taking.

‘Almost Blue’ is the first and probably not the last mass collaboration project to come from the Jazz Jousters group as this was a result of only a small number of their community of musicians, poets, emcees, Dee Jays, producers and music lovers.

R.I.P Chesney Henry "Chet" Baker, Jr. (December 23, 1929 – May 13, 1988
