A Hip-Hop/Jazz Hybrid Mix by DJ Rahdu: FlyJazzSounds

Playing three John Coltrane flips back to back during one of his live streams, led BamaLoveSoul founder DJ Rahdu to this FlyJazzSounds mix: a 30-minute balancing act between hip-hop tracks and jazz influences.

The mix features music by Tall Black Guy, Blu & Exile, Nicola Conte, Alfa Mist, Yussef Kamaal, The Good People, Yazmin Lacey & others. Full tracklist below.

“Sadly, while completing the mix, Jazz critic Stanley Crouch passed away. I admired Crouch for his beautiful writing and intelligence, but largely disagreed with his thoughts on Jazz and especially Hip Hop. He had a really interesting idea that Davey Crockett was the first embodiment of Hip Hop. I’ll share the link if I can find it again. RIP Bro Crouch.”
