Personnel:

Producer: Marc Mac

“Jazz used to be radical, that’s why hip hop producers used to sample it and rappers rhymed on it. I want to put Jazz back in the hands of hip hoppers.
[…]
The Visioneers idea was in my head long before we recorded the first record. Visioneers is not a band it’s a studio project. I wanted to pay respect to hip hop producers like Jazzy Jeff, Jay Dee and Pete Rock for introducing me to Jazz and I needed to produce the tracks like hip hop records that sound phat in a club and not like dinner Jazz, its about reclaiming Jazz”.

– Marc Mac.
