Third installation of the innovative Unwrapped series that combines hip hop & jazz sensibilities. With its combination of up to the minute interpretations, old school covers, & tribute medleys, Volume 3 will continue this marriage of styles pushing the boundaries with innovative arrangements & instrumental solos. Includes new versions of songs made famous by Busta Rhymes, Mariah Carey, 50 Cent, N.E.R.D., A Tribe Called Quest, Eminem, Slum Village, & Lauryn Hill.

I just purchased Volumes I, II, & III of the Hidden Beach Unwrapped series and for the most part these are worth notable consideration.

The fusing of the three musical forms, rap, R&B, and jazz is a wonderful idea as one art form contributes greatly to the other; moreover, in most cases, the lines can indeed become blurred, especially if you have a quality artist to exemplify this.

When the collaborations work, you have an amazingly mature level of entertainment. The jazz improvisations coupled with stellar vocal performances and engaging rap lines serve to bridge generational gaps because the focal point here is simply the music. It is most refreshing to have included such a stunning solo violinist, Karen Briggs, as an interpreter which makes one long for Noel Pointer who tried fairly successfully to incorporate the violin into jazz in the mid 70s. Since then, violinists seem to steer clear of jazz, R&B, and rap which is unfortunate.

However, when some of the arrangements do not work, (and some of them certainly do not!!) they fail colossally and the listener is left with the distinct impression that improvisation and creative energy was at an all time low. To be sure, the best volumes are I & III.

Standout cuts include:
Tainted (Vol 3)
The Tupac & Biggier Tributes (Vol 3
The Way You Move (Vol 3)
Music (Vol 2)
Still Not A Player (Vol 2)
Crush On You (Vol 1)
Loungin' - Who Do Ya Love? - (Vol 1)
The Light - (Vol 1)
One More Chance - (Vol 1)
So Fresh So Clean (Vol 1)
I Get Around (Vol 1)

I was also impressed with the roster of talent on the Hidden Beach label which includes none other than Jill Scott.

I was first put on to hidden Beach by purchasing Jill Scotts Words and Sounds album. Since then they have released quality product after quality product. Unwrapped is right up my alley. Sometimes I don't want to hear the words just the music. Instrumentals are too plain, the Unwrapped series take it to another level. Taking some of the best artists contemporary jazz has to offer and infusing their talent with hip-hop makes for classic material. While people talk about music and hip-hop not being fun and creative anymore this is an album that does just that. Being that I am from Detroit my favorites include their rendition of Slum Villages "Tainted" and Eminem's "Lose Yourself," which by the way Karen Briggs does her "thang" on. But by far Mike Phillips puts it down the best on Outkasts "I Like the Way You Move" and Lauryn Hill's "Doo Wop (That Thing)." Bottom line if you love good music, hip-hop and jazz the is a must buy. If this is the first you heard of the project also check out Unwrapped Volumes 1 & 2, Mike Phillips debut "You Have Reached Mike Phillips," and Jeff Bradshaws "Bone Deep." Both of these artists have performed on Unwrapped Volumes 1-3

Mike Phillips, Jeff Lorber and Larry Dunn of Earth, Wind and Fire. How could you go wrong? You can visit your local music store and find any number of imitators. Hidden Beach set the standard. This project is no exception. The downside of not living in Atlanta is not being able to catch snippets of this cd before it was released.

Even if Rap/Hip-Hop is not your thing, these instrumental interpretations definetly catch your attention. Some of my favorites include, Tainted, PIMP, Beautiful, In Da Club and The Way You Move. I particulary enjoyed the tributes to Biggie, Jam Master Jay and Tupac Shakur. In reading the liner notes I discovered that just about everything to sabotage this cd that could have happened....happened. I appreciate the effort and am grateful that they didn't give up. Pop this one in your cd changer and let the music handle the rest! Excellent!

For those of you who are scared of jazz, give the unwrapped series a try. The music is hot and the musicians are hotter. For those of you who are hard core jazz fans, try this mix of hip hop jazz and expand your musical tastes.

I've been looking for an album like this series for a while. These albums have seemed bridged the gap between different cross sections of people. Between the ol' and new school hip hop junkies; pure and smooth jazz listeners; and even people who don't even listen to hip hip are loving this series. This music you can listen and dance to without offending your mama. Can't wait for Vol. 4!!!

A sure fire way to listen to a lot of the new hip hop flava without the hard core lyrics. I hope they keep up with these projects

This series is one of the best concepts out. Its is perfect to bridge folk into the wonderful world of jazz. I truly enjoy this album (as well as the other two) and am savoring for Vol 4!.
This cd is always a hit at parties, work and in the whip!!!

I was first put on to Hidden Beach by purchasing Jill Scotts Words and Sounds album. Since then they have released quality product after quality product. Unwrapped Volume 3 is right up my alley. Sometimes I don't want to hear the words just the beat. Instrumentals are too plain, the Unwrapped series take it to another level. Taking some of the best artists contemporary jazz has to offer and infusing their talent with hip-hop makes for classic material. While people talk about music and hip-hop not being fun and creative anymore this is an album that does that. Being that I am from Detroit my favorites include their rendition of Slum Villages "Tainted" and Eminem's "Lose Yourself," which by the way Karen Briggs does her "thang" on playing violin.
