Scat's The Way It Is
The legendary hip-hop artist, and founding member of the Sugar Hill Gang, Master Gee, hosts a two part series tracing the influences of jazz on hip-hop today.
2x 60min, by Spiritland, first aired 1st May 2022
Master Gee will look at the influence of early scat on the rappers of the 80s and 90s, as well as talking to some of the jazz/hip-hop cross-over artists of today, who will illustrate the findings through live performance.
The series will appeal to jazz and hip-hop fans alike – and potentially bring in a new audience to the station – as well as exploring the history of jazz in a culturally significant and contemporary way
