I'm New Here
60s 70s Soul Funk without doubt one of the most important voices in 20th century music gil scottheron's landmark albums of the 1970's and work with longtime collaborator brian jackson have influenced a myriad of musical styles from rap acid jazz neo soul and spoken word jazz this latest album expertly produced by xl founder richard russell places scottheron's keenly observed biting spoken word narratives alongside sparse modern musical backdrops which reference touchstones as diverse and relevant as dubstep electronica and of course modern hiphop politically as relevant as ever as well as humourous melancholy and hopeful this is the work of a vibrant subtle poet of protest still able to manipulate the traditions of a stylistic oeuvre he helped create into something warm original and full of gravitas
