Jesse Futerman mixes instrumental hip-hop beats with jazz to create this fantastic EP. The result is music that sounds both sophisticated and easy going. While it may seem an unusal mix to some (or downright wrong to jazz or hip-hop purists), the two genres never seem at odds with one another. In fact, the natural flow in each of the tracks is fantastic.
The tightness of the backing beats is complemented by the freedom of the jazz instruments, which move in and out of the mix. This makes for a listening experience that is both relaxing and interesting.
