The third installation of Verve Remixed is far and away the best -- and the first two were completely worthwhile. The source material is taken from songs by artists such as Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughan, and the remixers include a wide swath of hip-hop and electronic music talent. Highlights includes Danger Mouse's take on Dinah Washington's "Baby Did You Hear?"; Carl Craig flipping Hugh Masekela's "The Boy's Doin' It"; and Nina Simone's "Little Girl Blue" by Postal Service. Verve Remixed 3 is enlightening for long-time Verve aficionados and fans of new-school producers.
