The Philadelphia Experiment
is the self-titled album resulting from a collaborative project including Uri Caine
(keyboards), Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson
(drums) and Christian McBride
(bass). Guest musicians include Pat Martino
(electric guitar), Jon Swana (trumpet) and Larry Gold (cello and arrangement).
Though all from Philadelphia, each musician brings their unique musical background. Caine is an avant-garde pianist, Thompson is a hip-hop drummer and McBride a jazz bassist. The result is an "insanely funky" album.
"Mister Magic" is followed by a "hidden track", where Christian McBride plays a cover of "Just The Two Of Us" by Grover Washington Jr, with bass tracks only.
