Blazing Arrow

Hi Russell,

I haven't seen Blazing Arrow mentioned much but it is one of my favorite albums--such a diverse assortment of guest artists and musical styles, and yet it's all glued together into one really cohesive, organic sound.

Any comments on the making of this album, working with Gift of Gab, Chief Xcel, and all the guest artists? How much input did you have and what was the creative workflow between you and Blackalicious like? Also, it sounds like both live musicians and samples were used equally, but they blend together so well--any tips on achieving this?

thanks so much,
Miles
