Bassist and producter Bill Laswell has gathered A-list names Grandmaster Melle Mel, Roc Raida, Amina Claudine Myers, Graham Haynes, and Bootsy Collins, among others), and he puts them together in unusual and revelatory ways and draws exceptional performances from them. He has recast classic jazz and jump-blues songs in a dub/funk/electro/hip-hop setting. And this one really is a success, if at times an unlikely one. Opening with the obscure King Pleasure song 'Little Boy Don't Get Scared,' he proceeds to build dark and dubby structures into which the swinging vocals of Asante, Dana Bryant, Myers, and Alicia Renee are able to float and dance with plenty of room but also solid rhythmic support
