" What's 'traditional' in jazz is the point of change...this music is what hip hop would have sounded like if they hadn't taken the instruments away from kids by cutting out school music programs."
-Tani Tabbal

"JazzHopRevolution is unstoppable...a genre-transcending, inter-generational organic serious musical connection that never forgets 'having fun' lies at the core of delivering an inspiring message."
-John Lindberg

" If 'This Isn't Art' didn't justify hip hop as legitimate music [by combining it with Rachmaninov]... then this should do the trick."
- Rahman Jamaal

Bassist/composer John Lindberg and lyricist/hip hop artist Rahman Jamaal have come together with the drumming artistry of Tani Tabbal to form a collaboration that weds creative jazz with cutting-edge hip hop. These artists have created a unique musical vocabulary within a compelling multi-genre inclusive project that connects with listeners of all kinds. It blends the dynamic elements of jazz improvisation and contemporary composition with a hip hop attitude and compelling lyrics, delivering strong messages that resonate with all audiences. By also utilizing aspects of world music (odd and mixed meters), and rock (electronics and driving rhythmic impetus), this group truly speaks a universal language. The CD album features ten original pieces that take the listener on a journey though a maze of grooves and messages of keen perception.

The DVD features the film, The Making of JazzHopRevolution, a candid look at the creative process of the artists as the album was recorded, and a music video of the album selection “The Myth”. The film and video were directed by John Bongiorno. The two disc package was released in June 2007 by LindyEditions, in association with Planet Arts

John Lindberg (bass); Rahman Jamaal (vocals); Tani Tabbal (drums)
