Of all of Madlib's YNQ offshoot's Sound Directions has been the one buzzing around the heads of the true Stones Throw fans for the longest, check Jukebox 7" STH4005 for proof. Probably the tuffest and the funkiest variation yet, Sound Directions features Madlib on beats and arrangements with his motley YNQ'er's on horns, guitar, live drums and keys. Roughly 50/50 original compositions to covers, of those check Marcos Valle's 'Wanda Vidal', Billy Brook's 'Fourty Days', Lesiman's 'Play Car', David Axelrod's 'A Divine Image' and Cliff Nobles 'The Horse', Then the mini J.J Johnson tribute 'One For J.J with 'Harlem Clavinet' from the Across 110th Street' soundtrack and finally Oliver Sain's 'On The Hill'. Bugged out for sure but also very tasty as is Jeff Jank's suggestive cover art.
