The PLAYlist - Chasing Goosebumps

DJジャジー・ジェフが気鋭の若手を中心に多くの才能を集め、合宿して「Playlist Retreat」という企画から派生し、今年2月、わずか1週間という期間を使ってグレン・ルイスをボーカルに据えたアルバムを作ろうというプロジェクト。完成してすぐ発売になったその成果『Chasing Goosebumps』のLPがついに4月末に発売になり、詳細なクレジットが明らかになったので、改めてこのプロジェクトを振り返ってみましょう。

コロラドのジャジー・ヒップホップ・グループ=プロカッションズの一員としても知られるストロー・エリオットや、「ポスト・グラスパー」シーンで注目されるピアニスト/プロデューサーのダニエル・クロフォード、イギリスのベテランであるカイディ・テイタム、スターシップ・コネクションとしても活躍するバークリー音楽院出身のティーコの4人を核に、ジェイムス・ポイザーアンドレ・ハリスヴィダル・デイヴィスアイヴァンカーヴィンスティーヴ・マッキーアンソニー・ベルといったフィリー勢や、エリック・ラウらが補佐。ジェフ・ブラッドショウマセーゴも関与しています。

シンガー・ソングライターではエリック・ロバーソンムスィーナ、TDE入りも果たしたSiR(サー)、ザ・ルーツ(“Don’t Feel Right”)やコモンとの共演などで知られるDCのマイムーナ・ユセフ、ジル・スコットやジャスティン・ティンバーレイクのツアー・コーラスなども務めたアーロン・キャンパーらが参加していますね。グレン・ルイスはあくまで歌声のみ提供という潔さ。

なお、フォンテ&エリック・ロバーソン『Tigallerro』(⇒ 全曲フル試聴可)にも参加していたダニエル・クロフォードは、エリック・ロバーソンが4月に発表した最新EP(にして3部作の第一弾)『Earth』を全面プロデュースしていますが、そのうち“First Loved Jesus”とグレン・ルイス参加の“Superman”はプレイリスト名義での制作で、この『Chasing Goosebumps』中に生まれたと思われます。後者の“Superman”は『Chasing Goosebumps』にも収録されていますが、アレンジ等違います。オマーの“Gave My Heart (DJ Jazzy Jeff Remix)”もエリック・ラウやカイディ・テイタムが関与しているそうなのでこのプロジェクトの派生にあるリミックスと言えそう。
