Marquis Hill is at his best unadulterated by the constraints put on him by his label. Yes I’d much rather listen to Modern Flows EP Vol. 1 than The Way We Play any day of the week. So when he drops a single, you check it out. His latest is a cover of Tiffany Gouché’s “Fantasy” stemming from an impromptu jam with Joel Ross on vibraphone, Junius Paul on bass, Makaya McCraven on drums and Harold Green III performing spoken word. This is Hill at his finest: uncensored, uncut, fresh and exciting. Check it out below the jump.
