Default Recommendations please

I'm looking for a Jazz-Hip Hop fusion album, after listening to Yesterday's New Quintet and Shades of Blue by Madlib I just need more! Does anyone have any recommendations?

EL-P has a jazz fusion album somewhere, but i heard it's very rare... his father's a great jazz/blues musician, and makes a cameo on it from what i hear... i haven't found it yet...

Low End Theory has some very good jazz type fusion tracks.......The track verses from the abstract made me a Ron Carter fan after hearing him play the base.

Dont forget the one before that....the All Souled Out EP


Also, the older O.C. albums have some jazz fusion.

only the first 2 jazzmattaz have a jazz influence (not that much). the 3rd is straight up hiphop w/ the exception of one track w/ erika badu.

the first 2 jazzmattaz albums were pretty nice. i especially like vol.2. but, given the title and the marketing behind those projects, i find they didn't live up to the hype. on a hiphop level, again they're nice, but a lot more could be done in fusing jazz and hiphop together. guru dind't push the boundaries too much. it's more like basic NY hiphop w/ jazz riffs on top.
