Unfortunately, I have been quitting reviewing because my brain mentally cannot type up more reviews due to college applications and the never ending plague of school work… until Andre 3000 released an avant-garde jazz record.
I am writing this preemptively to the release of the record to manage my excitement as I intend this review to be quite large. While not as notorious as his pen game, the OutKast star is known for his spiritual and artistic endeavors, such as ... read more

I have listened to The Black Saint and The Sinner Lady about six times, not considering single listens, and can say certainly there is nothing wrong with what I listened to. That being said, I have had no clue how to speak about it, until now. While it may be the most uneducated classical jazz review, it is done in the essence of appreciation.
“Track A- Solo Dancer” was my introduction into avant-garde jazz. It is eerie with ... read more
