In Stones Throw Records‘ continued methods of giving me a heart attack, Madlib and his gang of unknowns are collaborating with knows to come up with Volume 7 of his Medicine Show series of albums, with this installment scheduled for release on July 27th. Vinyl junkies will love the 3LP version of this album, subtitled High Jazz, for the third record will feature an additional half hour of music that is exclusive to the format.

For this album, Madlib provides a few more combinations to his musical Rubik’s Cube, including The Big Black Foot Band, Jahari Masamba Unit (featuring drummer Karriem Riggins), and RMC, which unites the talents of Madlib, Riggins, and longtime Roots collaborator James Poyser. The CD version features an homage to a well known Cannonball Adderley album, and like anything Madlib comes up with, this is indeed “something else”. Madlib Medicine Show No. 7: High Jazz can be ordered on vinyl and CD by heading over to Stones Throw.
