What makes the difference between acid jazz and trip hop?  To me, it’s the jazz.  Trip-hop generally has a more urban, modern feel, while acid jazz is a little more subtle and not as synthetic.  Today’s track, I feel, is more of an acid jazz track with some atmospheric electric piano with some neat synth sounds that really add to the rhythm of the track.  I had every intention of making it more obvious with a Chick Corea-style electric piano solo, but like I tell all my friends, I can’t really play piano, I just pretend to.  (Ok, so I guess I play piano a little bit.)
