The Sound Providers An Evening With The Sound Providers
- Words: Pete Babb
- Label: ABB
The Sound Providers' style is "jazz combo with drum programming." Utilizing dusty horn and piano loops as the backdrop, the Providers set a hip-hop jazz club vibe that's certainly a winner. Their Achilles heel is that they fall a little too in love with their loops, meaning several instrumental tracks stagnate, and don't take the formula any further. Nevertheless, some quality vocalists, including Asheru, Ken Boogaloo, Yeshua, Phonte and Pooh of Little Brother, propel their cuts ahead nicely, and there isn't a wack beat to be had here.
