I'm definitely not mad at it, and I don't pay attention to stuff as much as I used to.

Freeze Tag feels like a realllly good 9th Wonder beat. I wonder if other tracks might take on a more jazz style, but I'm here for all of it.

"Pig feet" that dropped a week or two ago? Had Kamasi and Terrace on it at least with a Denzel Curry feature. I liked it the first round but need to give it more attention.

this 'freeze tag' track is corny as hell: snare is shocking, singer is cringe.

glasper lost me around black radio 2/artscience time; it is getting to the point where i am going to stop checking on his releases.

He's the transcendent talent here, I just hope the project makes people check for his music. It would be worth it if that were the case

Dinner Party, really, I get it, but c'mon that's the name they choose, not something clever, something that would be easier to search, plus there is already one or two indie artists with that name (and I only know that when I saw this post and tried to search on bandcamp & discogs to see if there was any info yet), oh well.

I'll wait till the album drops to see if this was worth the effort since they didn't put much into naming the project/supergroup.

I like MOST of Terrace Martin's work though, and if his name wasn't attached I may not have listened....9th and Glasper would probably have been insufferable lmao

but also perfectly unmemorable.

I admittedly have a bordering-on-irrational dislike of Glasper at this point and Terrace generally bores me. But even with that in mind I'm surprised at how tepid this is.

A couple of the more beat-oriented instrumentals might make it on a playlist but I'll likely never play the album as a whole again...

Kinda goes downhill from there imo. I figured "Freeze Tag" would be the only song that repeptitive, but it turned out to be a very accurate advertisement for the project. I hoped that was just a head knodder to get people interested. I'd say most of these "songs" sound like reprised versions of more fleshed out songs... which I just find kinda weird from a roster this stacked. I almost think it would've made more sense if they just left the vocals out and went all the way AWF with the instrumentals.

Album features a lot of guest on the seven songs from Bilal to Herbie to Snoop.

*Just realized all the tracks are the same but more features, not sure if it's a remix album, haven't listened yet

Glasper is great as a live act, utterly forgettable in a studio setting. I guess you could call him the Black Thought of the modern jazz world.

This man is behind some of the worst names/album titles I’ve ever heard. What was that one recent thing I never listened to? R + R = Now or whatever? Black Radio Vol. 6? A non-literal mixtape called “FUCK YO FEELINGS?” Just terrible marketing and vision.

98% of the JAZZ BUT HIP-HOP JAZZ projects are non-starters for me. A studio setting with Glasper and 9th Wonder sounds like another banana peel on the trash heap. Ever heard of Jazzy Jeff’s Playlist Retreat? Where he gets 100+ DJs, producers, musicians, and vocalists together for a weekend? He loves to lock random combinations in studios and let them “create.” The funny thing is that literally every room produces the same shit - a basic drum track with “swing” and some fucking guy playing chords on a Fender Rhodes while everybody nods their heads like it’s the most amazing shit ever recorded.

I get those vibes looking at the “Dinner Party” collective. And no, I haven’t listened to a second of it.

Get off my lawn.

Granted this project hasn't aged well, and the dessert drop is a hell no for me - but I definitely listen to songs from Canvas and Black Radio 1 & 2 multiple times a year. Enjoyed the Covered project too. And a couple songs from the last mixtape (agree the title sucked)

Have seen him twice live now. First time was a dumpster fire but the last time was very dope.

I can mess with Glasper + Terrace or Terrace + Salaam or Glasper/Terrace/Kamasi...I think 9th might be the outlier here
