Common – Time Travelin’ (2000)

November 5, 2018

Today I heard the news that the influential trumpet player Roy Hargrove had died. He was a force in contemporary jazz and made great contributions to the jazz influenced soul, latin and hip-hop music of the late 90s – 2000s.

This is the opening track from one of my favourite hip hop albums – Common’s ‘Like Water For Chocolate’ – featuring Roy Hargrove, Femi Kuti and Vinia Mojica. It shows the evolution of hip hop with J Dilla and D’Angelo involved in the production.
