0054 The Detroit Experiment – Vernors @ 2:53

Monday, November 23rd, 2009


An oldie but goodie, this is one of Carl Craig’s more obscure projects. Here is he hooks up with Karriem Riggins and a host of  old and new school Detroit jazz talent to record an homage to their city. This one track on here has been in my Itunes for a while and this part has always stood out. Right near the end, after a synth wave fades out, a bassy guitar loop chimes in. It’s a meeting of the minds between Craig’s techno bassline, Riggin’s hip hop drums, and the pedigree and patience of a jazz legend’s guitar. It all comes together perfectly. It’s always nice being surprised near the end of a song when it gets better instead of just fading away.

Vernors 2:53 – 3:23
