Mirrors is another installment to come from Millennium Jazz’s Lab Off sessions within their international Jazz Jousters community as they return yet again with a third helping of quality Trip Hop and Hip Hop Jazz. In this session the Jousters came together to sample the 1963, ‘Mirrors’ by the Vibraphone and Marimba veteran Bobby Hutcherson.
In the album ‘Misty’, ‘the Jousters are paying homage to the late great Bob Brookmeyer, and as a sample source they used his version of the classic ‘Misty’, which Bob (Valve Trombone) played alongside the likes of Stan Getz (tenor sax), Gary Burton (vibraphone), Herbie Hancock (piano), Ron Carter (bass) and Elvin Jones (drums), all of whom made up the ‘Bob Brookmeyer Sextet’ in 1964’.
‘Almost Blue’ is an EP in tribute to the great Chet Baker from the members of Millennium Jazz’s online community that is the Jazz Jousters group. With their shared love of Jazzhop and Jazz orientated music the group was inspired by Chet Baker’s ‘Almost Blue’ and decided to have a lab off session using the classic song as a sample.
