The World Famous Lessons in Jazz (Video Segment)

This is a segment which was stumbled upon which gives a great synopsis of the relationship between Hip Hop and Jazz, in a news style segment that is very informative giving a simple, articulate definition of sampling. This collective refers to themselves as The World Famous Lessons in Jazz who founded themselves on similar principles on which we discuss on this blog, but as attempted to find more research on this collective, they seem to have disbanded since the video was uploaded in 2007.

Roy Ayers makes an appearance in this video, and also is represented by a phone interview. This video is surely worth checking it out, even if you are well versed on Hip Hop sampling.
