The Philadelphia Experiment (album)
The Philadelphia Experiment is the self-titled album resulting from a collaborative project including Uri Caine (keyboards), Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson (drums) and Christian McBride (bass). Guest musicians include Pat Martino (electric guitar), Jon Swana (trumpet) and Larry Gold (cello and arrangement).
Though all from Philadelphia, each musician brings their unique musical background. Caine is an avant-garde pianist, Thompson is a hip-hop drummer and McBride a jazz bassist. The result is an "insanely funky" album. "Mister Magic" is followed by a "hidden track", where Christian McBride plays a cover of "Just the Two of Us" by Grover Washington, Jr., with bass tracks only, starting at the 4:30 mark of the song.
Ropeadope later issued two follow-up albums:
The Detroit Experiment featured Carl Craig, Bennie Maupin, Marcus Belgrave, Geri Allen, and Regina Carter.
The Harlem Experiment featured Carlos Alomar, Steve Bernstein, Don Byron, Eddie Martinez, bassist Ruben Rodriguez, and drummer Steve Berrios. Guests includes multi-genre vocalist Queen Esther Marrow, bluesman Taj Mahal; vocalist/guitarist James Hunter; trumpeter Olu Dara; turntablist Larry Legend; and the poet muMs da Schemer.

“Id like to see Paris before I die. Philadelphia will do.”

“Mathematics alone make us feel the limits of our intelligence. For we can always suppose in the case of an experiment that it is inexplicable because we dont happen to have all the data. In mathematics we have all the data ... and yet we dont understand. We always come back to the contemplation of our human wretchedness. What force is in relation to our will, the impenetrable opacity of mathematics is in relation to our intelligence.”
—Simone Weil (19091943)
