Pardon My French

Jahari Massamba Unit

I don’t really have the words to describe this album so I shall leave the Bandcamp description for a bit of insight:

We would have called it Spiritual Jazz but Phil Ranelin told us to call it Black Classical Music.

We are proud to announce the long-awaited debut album from Jahari Masamba Unit, Pardon My French. Among all of the projects Madlib presented as part of his Jazz Universe, this collaboration was of particular note to fans, who continued to wonder for years if anything else might come from the collaboration. This album, put together by students of jazz in its myriad and historic corms, and also proponents of jazz’s future, reflects a lifetime of record collecting, musical study, woodshopping, and a reverential respect for one another’s craft.
