The Cool is inspired by Miles Davis, Gil Evans and co.’s The Birth of the Cool; a collaborative project of a similar nature that gave rise to the “cool jazz” movement of the 1950s and 60s. Just as Davis and co.’s sound brought a seemingly watered-down “bop” era back to its jazz roots, The Cool aims to bring jazz hip-hop back to its American boom-bap roots and provide a sound-scape enjoyable for listeners in Japan and across the world. Without further ado, Marcus D & AbsolutZero proudly present to you, volume one of The Cool.
