Terrace Martin’s Band The Pollyseeds Drop Hip-Hop-Infused Jazz Song ‘Mama D/Leimert Park’ [LISTEN]

The Pollyseeds, a musically-inclined Los Angeles group fronted by the talented producer Terrace Martin, are back with another jazzy instrumental that will certainly have you nodding your head.

The band’s smooth track called “Mama D/Leimert Park,” features a blend of jazz and hip-hop. Judging by the title, the song must be an ode to Leimert Park, a residential area in Los Angeles which has a thriving African-American arts scene.

Real rap heads will also notice the drums on the song are from The Honey Drippers’ “Impeach the President,” which is one of the most used breakbeats in hip-hop history. Along with Martin’s soothing saxophone groove and you have a song that’s perfect to play at a summer barbecue party or cruising in your car on a sunny day.

Martin has released several tunes from the group’s upcoming album, The Sounds of Crenshaw, Vol. 1. Songs like “Intentions,” “Up & Away,” and the cover of Janet Jackson’s “Funny How Time Flies,” are gorgeous ear candy with infectious melodies and grooves that will soothe your soul.

You can pre-order The Pollyseeds’ album right now on iTunes. The collection will arrive on Friday (July 14).
