For Those Who Know Pt. I - Brasstracks

Released a month or so ago, this EP comes from Brasstracks, a group known for blending elements of jazz and instrumental horn music with modern pop and EDM. Robert Glasper worked with the group on many of the songs on this EP, and his experience in jazz and jazz fusion certainly shows.

There are some hits, some that I’m only lukewarm on, and one particularly bad miss, but in general, it’s a pretty good EP.
