Two Pages [Talking Loud, 1998]
Creating Patterns [Talking Loud, 2001]
With LTJ Bukem, 4 Hero were one of the first jungle acts to desert hardcore for the astral drift of jazz-fusion atmospheres, and Two Pages is about as fusion-soaked as it gets. The first of the two discs includes the more downtempo R&B, almost orchestral side of 4 Hero, quite indebted to jazz luminaries like Pharoah Sanders, Lonnie Liston Smith and Roy Ayers. Many of the instruments are live contributions, while vocalists as wide-ranging as poet Ursula Rucker and Digable Planets rapper Butterfly make appearances. [John Bush]
Two Pages was great; Creating Patterns was just OK.
