All Music Guide:

A one-off studio jam featuring native Philadelphia musicians Ahmir Thompson (the Roots, Erykah Badu, Macy Gray, Musiq Soulchild), Christian McBride (McCoy Tyner, Kathleen Battle, Benny Golson, Benny Green, Ray Brown), and Uri Caine (Mickey Roker, Robert "Bootsie" Barnes, Don Byron), the Philadelphia Experiment players met for three breezy September days in 2000 at the Roots' studio space. Local friends Pat Martino, John Swana, and Larry Gold stopped in to jam and lent their sounds to several tracks. A fun, infectious, and funky date, The Philadelphia Experiment was released on both CD and double-LP vinyl.
