I recall some 15 or so years ago going, on occasions, to the Blue Note club in Hoxton Square, Islington on a Sunday afternoon. Upstairs was the Sunday Soul Affair where you listened to rare soul, ate the Jerk Chicken from the kitchen, browsed the crates and generally jus' chilled with a beer or 2. Downstairs however a few DJs played some wicked, often furious, jazz funk and latin for almost exclusively dancers to practise. Now I weren't bad at my soul 2step but I was strictly a spectator when it came to them boys!
In the spirit of them jazz boys heres 'On a Jazz Tip Vol. 2' for all you revival jazz funk/fusion fans. Contributions from Donald Byrd, Doug Carn (Jean's ex), and both Charles Earland & Black Sugar lay down some solid interpretations of well loved tunes.
