This Is Acid Jazz: The Spoken Word
Instinct Records

This Is Acid Jazz: The Spoken Word (Instinct Records, INS427, 48:51) showcases nine male/female jazzoetry rebels from the UK/US throwing Gil Scott-Heron-Jayne Cortez-Rakim lyrical mojos over some stank grooves. Total moment: "Pal Joey's New Breed-New York New York"'s head-slapping rush of house beats, sax wails, yin/yang science (Lucien Redwood) and recurring loops of that "Skyscrapers and everything" skit from Stevie's "Living for the City."
