The Needle Drop

Purple Moonlight Pages is a thought-provoking self-portrait of the artist formerly known as Milo, as well as just a damn good jazz rap album.

Pitchfork

R.A.P. Ferreira (formerly milo) makes his most free-spirited project yet, rapping gleefully over lively and wayward production.

I have no idea what this man is saying 90% of the time but man I bet it's some real shit.

I only heard of this guy through recommendations for one of his albums back when he was Milo, "So the Flies Don't Come" (gotta check that out sometime), but damn! This was a treat to sit through! "Purple Moonlight Pages" is a fantastic jazz rap record! The production here is simply beautiful, the instrumentation, especially the bass, is fantastic and Milo spits some heady, wordy verses throughout this entire album!

Although a small fraction of this album comes across as an audible raspberry, the sonic lingerings of once was milo transitions indefinitely under a new moniker through a free-spirited and empowering sound. Besides it’s very little shortcomings through memorability here and there, nearly most of this record will stand the test of time as one of the greatest jazz rap feats since Guru’s Jazzmatazz of the early 90s.

Mini Review: Best engineering I’ve heard all year. Kenny and Kev made every aspect of this record so crisp. Plus the instrumentalists here give it their all, especially the stand-up bassist. On top of it all, Milo drops some of his most entertaining verses since ‘So the Flies Don’t Come.’ All around, a phenomenal jazz rap release that isn’t entirely abstract, but the verses give it that feel.
