Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment: Surf
Buy! - (self-released)
The debut album from this Chicago collective led by trumpeter Nico Segal (aka Donnie Trumpet) and also featuring Chance The Rapper in a prominent role is a summery, expansive and beautifully crafted blend of hip hop with jazz, funk, R&B and other styles, combining a warm, sunny sound using lots of live instrumentation with an impressive lineup of guest singers and rappers including Janelle Monae, Busta Rhymes and Erykah Badu, though it’s often Chance who steals the show. 6/4/2015 - Don Yates
