Bowls delivers the second, Highly Recommended edition of jazz cuts sampled by J. Dilla. Props to Bowls for discovering some hidden gems that are mostly unknown by the dustiest of crate diggers. The mix highlights Bowls' talents as a digger; as well as Dilla's wizardry of manipulating sample sources.
Recorded nearly 7 years after the first volume, Another Token Jazz Hour is my second 60-minute mix of jazz records sampled by Jay Dee AKA J Dilla. All tracks were ripped from 100% original vinyl pressings, except for the 2 songs that were only issued on CD/cassette. As for the music itself, this journey dives a bit deeper than its predecessor. 70+ samples referencing everything from the classics to the largely-unknown. At its core, though, it’s just like the first one - an earnest tribute to his ear and passion for music, his timeless contributions, and his legacy as the greatest beatmaker ever. Enjoy, please share it, and thank you for listening!
