Roy Hargrove's loss this year was especially difficult on the jazz community, so Pat and Mike devote a whole episode to his work. We didn't get to his electric period in this one, but look at three acoustic leader dates as well as an album where he takes the "Miles" slot in a Herbie Hancock led tribute group. We also peek in on his contributions to D'Angelo's influential album Voodoo. Musings about the young lions movement, nineties style jazz production, and the glory days of the "big label" push for jazz, ensue.
