It’s all about Otis Jackson Jr. Better known as Madlib, but by the time of this release around 2002, was not even releasing on that alias yet.
After Lootpack and Quasimoto, he decided to expand himself into another realm of music. And in order to do that, of course he came up with a new fictional character, or well .. 4 actually.
Yesterday’s New Quintet is a jazz collective of 4 fictional musicians and himself, all made up and performed by Madlib. This instrumental is from the album ‘Stevie’ which is, as the name suggests, a tribute to Stevie Wonder.
This reminds me of sunny rides in Sydney, enjoy and unwind ..
