RE:GENERATION Track: Mark Ronson “A La Modeliste”
I can definitely say I feel like I may have saved the best for last. Produced by Mark Ronson, “A La Modeliste” is the Jazz track for RE:GENERATION featuring Erykah Badu, Trombone Shorty, Mos Def, Zigaboo Modeliste, and Members of The Dap Kings. I have always loved jazz music, and growing up in the South I have becoming particularly fond of the jazz that comes out of New Orleans. I also love the multi-talented Mark Ronson. His talents as a DJ, Guitarist, Music Producer, and artist all shine in this track and he helps New Orleans Jazz music shine in an extremely brilliant and innovative way. A great track from the RE:Generation project that makes me hope they continue the project in the future with more artists and genres.
I have nothing but respect for all of these musicians that participated in the RE:Generation project. The work they have done is inspiring and I hope it influences other musicians to take part as well. The goal of the project was to challenge these artists to discover how our musical past is influencing the future, and so I tip my hat to the RE:Generation Music Project. Job well done and mission accomplished.
