Remixed 3 features highly addictive takes on classic Jazz cuts from the past, bridgin important works with contemporary electronic music artists. A few of these remixes touch on brilliance, including Adam Freeland's remix of Fever and the Lyrics Born remix of Jimmy Smith's Stay Loose (my personal favorite). As a former Jazz musician, this album was highly enjoyable. What is apparent here is the amount of time each remixer took to study their tracks and plan out how to make it their own. Verve Remixed 3 is definitely recommended and has been in our heavy rotation for over a month.
