Poetry – The RH Factor featuring Erykah Badu and Q-Tip
Roy Hargrove is one of my favourite jazz trumpeters. Even more so because of his project the RH Factor’s album, Hard Groove. The RH Factor combined elements of jazz, funk, hip-hop, soul, and gospel music through the help of artists such as Q-Tip, Common, Erykah Badu, D’ Angelo and Marc Carry among others. The album is laced with freestyle rap poetry, sultry hip-hop and soulful yet moody R&B vocals. Looking forward to experiencing Roy and his quintet live at the upcoming Joy of Jazz in Jo’burg this September.
