=============================
A WORD FROM SHAG
Listen to this after dark in a hazy and dimly-lit room all by yourself. Save it for a time when your mind is stress-free and aware of that fact - right after work on a Friday night, or sometime similar. You can stray from that suggestion if time isn’t a luxury, but don’t ignore this one: listen at high volumes. Make the music the most prominent thing in the room while you’re listening. Mimic a live setting and I think you will get the best and most personal experience possible out of these tracks.

These tracks are from a universe where dusty jazz lounges can be found on every street corner, pop music is made up of more than three major chords, and a Fender Rhodes sits heavily used in a corner of every home. Rap music is still around (there’s no way it wouldn’t manifest), but has evolved with different influences being more prominent. I imagined myself being the one lucky enough to be asked to create some of the tapestries for these wordsmiths (and Gucci Mane) to rap over, and applied the vibes appropriately.

A WORD FROM THE RESEARCHER
It didn’t take a blindfold test for me to recognize the talent Shag possesed. I might repeat my past critiques of Shag here, but he approaches the music making process and I should add right now, music as well, from an “angle” that, although unprecedented, is just the right “angle” for him. Perhaps this is the major reason for my feeling the same respect and admiration for his work that I have for acts such as Blockhead, Vanilla, Dilla, Cut and J. Rocc.

While Shag searches for the next prog rock samples to
reinvent the classic hip-hop tracks we grew up with, or you
(the reader) still haven’t figured out who Bill Evans is, an absolutely inimitable experience is in you (the listener’s) future.
Todays music scene is flooded with attempts to express the individuality that is just not present. Shag composed an artifact that blesses the beauty of the fact that there just ain’t no other like it. He can check off his list the noble accomplishment of of a testimony to an exceptional, worthwhile life.
