Sometime during the 1990s DJs in late night clubs particularly in London and New York began sampling classic jazz, in particular from the Hard Bop and Soul Jazz eras, and placing it into the rhythms and reality of Hip Hop. As time progressed, jazz grooves and Hip Hop sensibilities converged, merged, and then diverged. Some would argue that hip hop is nu jazz while others would posit that Hip Hop is a reimagining of Bebop and beyond. In this hour, we will explore some musical locations where jazz, hip hop, lo-fi, groove, and samples met up, even if just for a passing moment.
