Porcini’s Latter Day Fusion

Funki Porcini‘s Lets See What Carmen Can Do (Ninja Tune Zen50, 1997): A masterful moment occurs two minutes into the title track when a techno trademark — the extended, high-pitched squelch, a la Prodigy — reveals itself, unfolding into a sampled hot jazz horn solo. The solo appears later, less of a novelty but no less of a revelation.
