Following in the path of the Philadelphia Experimentthe Detroit Experiment is a multigenerational meeting of Motor City talent that casts its net far enough to include players from several fields of music. There are some genuinely electric and inspired moments scattered across the album, along with a few that are too tepid to generate much of a reaction, but the album is consistently laid-back and slickly executed throughout its entirety.
With a roster of people like that on board, you know it's going to be steeped in jazz; however, there are several moments that make it an eclectic affair.

A transformation of Stevie Wonder 's "Too High" is incredibly spacy, with Fiddler 's voice often looming ominously over a spare arrangement. Originals like "There Is a God" spotlighting Carter 's sad but redemptive violin and "Vernors" a swaggering hip-hop instrumental with light additions from several of the instrumentalists also add more colors. Somewhat unsurprisingly, the references to Detroit are all but countless; they're in the song titles, they're in the actual songs, and they're also peppered throughout the lyrics of "The Way We Make Music" female MC Invincible scores bonus points for throwing in the New Dance Show.
