Comments:  Powerful Blue Note remixes by Otis Jackson Jr. (Madlib).
Not quite a Rhodes album per se but there is some extensive use of it on a few songs (dolphin dance and footprints for instance).
Check out Slim's Return (Gene Harris and the Three Sounds), and Stepping into Tomorrow (Donald Byrd).
Also of strong suit are songs by Bobby Hutcherson (Montara), Ronnie Foster (Mystic Voyage), and Bobbi Humphrey (I can't rememer the name of this track offhand).
By the way, B3 freaks should be checking out Ronnie Foster's "The Two Headed Freap". It's hard to find (it may only be availble on vinyl) but with given the title ya know it's gotta be good, eh.
I picked up this Madlib album a year ago and I'm still listenin' to it today so check it.
Peace
