Rating: 98/100 (learn more)

The exploration of swing within funk and funk within swing created by Redman’s Elastic Band is something to witness live. However, the rapport of this working band is just as apparent on record. The terrain of “Jazz Crimes,” with its serpentine melody, is split wide open for some of the most well-constructed improvisation heard in jazz today. Yahel is first to lay down some deep, bluesy phrases, and Redman takes that ball and runs with it. Blade is all groove and then some. For the total experience of development and interplay, this record is a must-have.
