“No group has embraced the median zone between hip-hop and jazz as prolifically as Toronto four-piece BADBADNOTGOOD.” – NPR

Toronto-based Grammy award-winning jazz ensemble BADBADNOTGOOD makes expansive music that straddles the line between ’70s soul-jazz, alternative hip-hop, and experimental electronica. Since gaining attention for hip hop covers in the early 2010s, they have balanced working on their own original songs, as on 2016’s album, IV. The group combines jazz musicianship with a hip hop production perspective and have collaborated with such artists as Tyler, The Creator, Daniel Caesar, Kendrick Lamar, and more. They been nominated for four Grammy Awards, winning two for “Best Rap Album” 2018 and “Best Progressive R&B Album” 2021, as a producer. Their latest, fifth solo album, Talk Memory, is a mostly improvisational work, produced and written by the band with contributions from featured American instrumentalists Laraaji, Karriem Riggins, Terrace Martin, and Brandee Younger.
