Today I thought I would do something different here on the Soultracks Video Countdown, so ride with me. On February 16th, 2017 at 10pm EST,DJ Jazzy Jeff live streamed his new collaborative album "Chasing Goosebumps" through The Playlist Sessions on Facebook in an hour long presentation. He issued a challenge to singers, songwriters and producers to complete an album in the span of one week. The stream was a collective of persuasive and meticulously picked visuals that told a story behind the project, coupled with exemplary instrumentation and vocal ability on a list of amazing tracks. Artists grouped around DJ Jazzy Jeff listening intently as he spoke about being an artist and pushing the envelope with artistry. They studied, they conversed and they created. There are a host of artists on the project that we all know and love—Jeff Bradshaw, Eric Roberson, Avery*Sunshine, Aaron Camper, Tall Black Guy, Musinah, Black Thought, Rich Medina, J.Period, Brett Baker and many, many more. The project is spearheaded vocally by R&B soul man Glenn Lewis and the tracks couldn't be laid down any cleaner, the production couldn't be any tighter and the music couldn't be any more heavenly. 

The process for "Chasing Goosebumps" took place over the span of one week, which is a pretty ambitious feat. Jeff channeled the greatness of Quincy Jones on the producing front, and it definitely paid off. This is an album that will stand the test of time and live up to the definition of a "classic". 
 
Tale note of the first video from the project called "Distraction" voiced by Rich Medina with Glenn Lewis on vocals.
 
Chasing Goosebumps is available on iTunes, Spotify and Bandcamp for purchase. 
 
Congrats to DJ Jazzy Jeff and friends for an exceptional outing for 2017.
