Jamila Woods: Legacy! Legacy! [Jagjaguwar, 2019]
This poetry-with-sophistofunk tribute to a sharp selection of 20th-century African-American art heroes plus Frida Kahlo will always be a tad too atmospheric and impressionistic to suit me. But it does both flow and signify. I highly recommend the dippy keybs that flavor "Miles," the futuristic electrothump that grounds "Muddy," the Malvina Reynolds lift that situates "Zora," and how pissed off "Basquiat" sounds. B+
