The 13-track project hears Riggins on drums and Madlib taking care of the instruments, and marks one of the pair’s sporadically-released albums together. “Among all of the projects Madlib presented as part of his Jazz Universe, this collaboration was of particular note to fans, who continued to wonder for years if anything else might come from the collaboration,” they wrote in a statement. “This album, put together by students of jazz in its myriad and historic corms, and also proponents of jazz’s future, reflects a lifetime of record collecting, musical study, woodshopping, and a reverential respect for one another’s craft.”
