great hip-hop last year, so on that score, there just may not have been a
lot of impressive discs released. I'm a little surprised that the
Roots-related project _Red, Hot + Riot_ hasn't received more end-of-year
praise, as it's a fine marriage of Fela's Afro-funk and the current
new-soul sounds of D'Angelo, Macy Gray, Common and the other Okay Player
acts who've dominated my wife's CD collection over the past few years.
That ?uestlove is a great producer in the sense that he can really put
groups of disparate talents together and come up with something organic.
