"Official Pete Rock & The Soul Brothers-Petestrumentals 3 Post"

Definitely the shortest Petestrumentals release, but a dope way to extend the series. Honestly this puts Pete Rock in even more rare air than before, if that's possible.

Some really amazing reworks of some of Pete's work here ("Live With Me" is basically a live version of Blu's "The Clean Hand") and it still feels like Pete Rock, in a Duke Ellington way like he's playing the band itself.

Again - calling this “Petestrumentals 3” is so basic and misleading.

these performances are really really rich - well-arranged, thoughtfully developed over the full song. I would love to hear Pete do more of this!

when you think about this, the Gang Starr and Tribe albums it's quite the thing to behold and be around for

This is career-revival stuff from Pete. It deserves a better rollout for so many reasons.

Actually, on second thought, Pete Rock has outed himself as a complete moron over the last 10 years, so calling it something as generic as “Petestrumetals 3” is hella on brand.

Shout out to Daru Jones though.

His career “revival” the last few years is something else.

in the past few years, it's interesting to see DJs conceptualized as the heart of a band

Not sure I'd say I like it as much as his best sample-based music but this is still dope and a nice addition to his arsenal.

he just took them and had them replayed with a band. I think it's long overdue for that treatment but I get you missing the vintage PR sound though
