The two producers had full access to the enormous Blue Note Records catalogue, and they showed remarkable facility in turning familiar phrases into slinky hip-hop riffs. Us3's excellent 1994 hit single "Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia)" lifts from pianist Herbie Hancock's mid-'60s post-bop classic "Cantaloupe Island" made the track an unforgettable archetype of the regrettably short-lived acid jazz movement.The rest of FLIP FANTASIA: HIT AND REMIXES, a ten-song condensation of Us3's two releases, is nearly the equal of that hit. Samples from such jazz giants as Freddie Hubbard and Benny Green power Wilkinson and Simpson's slick, glossy beats. Unfortunately, the accompanying raps tend to be uninspired and forgettable. Nonetheless, the jazzers are the stars throughout FLIP FANTASIA.
