Black Radio Recovered: The Remix EP
Released: Oct 2012
Label: Blue Note Records
Black Radio's expert mixture of jazz, R&B and rap was a success on its own. But just in case anyone thought it represented a too-smooth take on fusion, here is a remix EP (of album length) that drags things a little more toward the hip-hop axis. 9th Wonder, Pete Rock and Questlove all turn in great productions. And the finale is a new version of Glasper's tribute to Dilla. At 36 minutes and zero languor, this remix album surpasses the original for consistency, even if it sacrifices some subtlety in the process. Thankfully, there's no need to choose between them.
