Alex Watts marks the 20th anniversary of Dr. Dre’s landmark release ‘2001’ and its legacy in big band, soul, and classical music. 

By examining the production techniques used, as well as some of the many, many subsequent cover versions, Alex discusses what makes ‘2001’ a classic and what perhaps doesn’t stand up in 2019.
