DJ Grizz- Wind Down Soul Vol. 4

Nights are getting longer and colder here in London so a perfect time to rack up the heating, pour yourself a glass of something and chill out to Wind Down Soul Vol. 4.

A selection of laidback Soul n Jazz starts with percussionist, song writer and producer Norman Connors with Glenn Jones on vocals, something jazzy up next from Issac Hayes then the distinct voice of Esther Phillips, there's an 'end of the night' blues party classic from Tyrone Davis, and we end with 2 tracks from 2 seriously contemplative Soul-jazz artists in Andy Bey and Terry Callier. Plus more music to put your feet up to!

I'll reappear next weekend with more Soulful good stuff... SoulNRnB on the way soon!
