R+R=NOW / Collagically Speaking

R+R=NOW / Collagically Speaking

Robert Glasper率いるユニット、R+R=NOWのアルバム。ちなみにユニット名はReflect+Respond=NOWの略で、RobertがTribute AlbumにかかわったNina Simoneの有名な言葉にインスパイアされたものとのこと。1tp, 1kb. 2synth, 1bs, 1dsの6人構成。Terrace MartinがSaxが効けるのは1曲だけで、何故か主にSynthを担当している。構成としてはJazz演奏がベースとなり、曲毎にVocal, Rap, Spoken Wordなど趣向が凝らさていて,その辺含めて、Hip-Hop寄りの作りになっている。ただ、演奏自体が瑞々しく、力がこもっているところに好感が持てる。
