Quite good, but not nearly as hard as the cover.


Some nice chill ass jazz, put this on while u draw or something it's really beautiful shit. I just love the way jazz sounds in general and the keys on this album are amazing, especially with how tight the drums and cello are. It's just really really really good, I'm not too well versed in Jazz on a technical level so I can't really go to in-depth with this review but I love the way this sounds and it makes me happy.

Best songs: Thelonious, Ugly Beauty, Boo Boo's Birthday, Easy Street, Green ... read more
