Everything old is new again on this collection of material from the vaults of the legendary jazz label Verve Records. On Verve Remixed, Vol. 2, contemporary hip-hop producers and DJs have taken classic tracks from Dizzy Gillespie, Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Ramsey Lewis, Willie Bobo, Archie Shepp, and others and remixed them, accentuating the grooves and giving the material a modern spin while honoring the genius of the original performances. Verve Remixed, Vol. 2 is available in tandem with Verve Unmixed, Vol. 2, in which the same selections appearing on the remix album are presented in their original form.
