Format: Audio CD
This album will slot nicely in on almost anyones collection.Coming from the much sampled stable of Blue Note, you'll recognise more than a few of the beats, riffs, and breaks from the world of hiphop. Cool is the only way to describe it. An album that is admired by friends of mine who would never dream of buying a jazz album. The mellow beats and infectious rhythms are enouugh to convert anyone. Buy this one, and you'll soon find yourself craving for more Jazz on your CD shelf.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Funk on Hold on 14 Feb. 2004
Format: Audio CD
This is one of the first groove compilations I bought off the blue note label, and it wasn't the last. The blue breakbeats comps bridge the gap between mainstream jazz and the soul/funk vein. Lots of punchy organ, riff-filled drumming and funky percussion. The best part is the theme: all the songs have been sampled at one time or another by various DJs, and the liner notes lay it out. All the songs pretty much have that Sunday morning comedown feel and they segue nicely into each other. Grant Green's "Sookie Sookie" and The Three Sounds' "Your Love is Too Much" are the high points of the jam. Recommended to the neophyte groover, definitely worth a peep.

Format: Audio CD
I have been a lover of funk jazz for a while now and this cd reminds me why I like it so much. This is an ideal CD to sit back and chill out to, although some of the tracks deserve dedicated listening. The above reviews mention tracks by Grant Green which are excellent, fot me though the track "KUDU" hits the spot. The slow intoduction leads inot a nice lively and heavy bass line very nice indeed.

A delicious set of some of the best Blue Note jazz. 17 Jan. 2000
By yygsgsdrassil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Want some of the best jazz around--? Budget impaired, like myself? Fortunately, for us, there's this Blue Note Records collection of the best from favorites like Donald Byrd, Lou Donaldson, and Grant Green. Now, the powers that be at EMI-Capitol thought to get some sells of this great jazz by packaging it as a "sample this" offering to hip-hoppers/rap ranconteurs. It turns out that they needn't have done so. The various volumes and the box set with Vols 1-4 has some great work like Bobbi Humphrey's "Harlem River Drive" and Herbie Hancock's "Olilloqui Valley". The music, in other words, can really stand alone...I would urge those interested in sampling to listen to these greats not to lift a groove, but to help themselves in learning how to make their own groove....Dig?

Clarification on this CD's origins 6 Jun. 2009
By McG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
To clarify the previous reviewer's comment.

It is not a samplers record, it is a chance to hear the original tracks. The proper title was "Blue Break Beats (You Gotta Hear Blue Note to Dig Def Jam)".

This CD started life as a double LP - it was compiled by Dean Rudland and Eddie Pillar back in 1992.
If you remember Acid Jazz, then these names will mean something to you, along with Gilles Peterson.

The idea of the collection was to draw peoples attention to the really excellent Blue Note tracks being sampled in the Hip Hop records everyone was listening to ('92).

This was way way before all the CD re-issues of the Blue Note Archive - we had to buy imports of the Japanese King re-pressings or go to Ray's Jazz shop and buy the originals.
The success of this compilation, lead to the Straight No Chaser re-issue selection, more compilations, the re-awakening of people's love of Jazz and the general re-availability of the Blue Note catalogue.

You can thank Acid Jazz for that.
