The Philadelphia Experiment

One-off studio jam featuring Ahmir Thompson, a Philadelphia native musician (the Roots), Erykah Badu (Macy Gray, Musiq soulchild), Christian McBride, McCoy Tyner (Kathleen Battle, Benny Golson), Benny Green (Ray Brown), and Uri Case (Mickey Roker (Robert “Bootsie”) Barnes, Don Byron). The Philadelphia Experiment players met at the Roots’ studio space for three sunny September days. Larry Gold, John Swana, Pat Martino and John Swana were among the local musicians who stopped by to jam on several tracks. The Philadelphia Experiment was a fun, infectious, and funky date. It was released on CD and double-LP vinyl. Allmusic
