Product Description

Product Description

In response to strong sales of the CD editions of Jazz Noire and Drink Up Light Up!, and to meet the demands of vinyl collectors, Fantastic Voyage now releases highlights of both compilations as 2LP vinyl editions, limited to 500 copies. Jazz Noire is your soundtrack to the mean streets of Los Angeles in the post-war 1940s. This 28-track 2LP selection from the 46-track 2CD set presents studio recordings by the era s most famous musicians, many of whom were based in, or were habitués of the bars and theatres of The City Of Angels. For music-lovers, Jazz Noire constitutes a fascinating survey of the evolving jazz scene in a period when big band swing was losing ground to smaller jazz combos and the bebop style was developing. It was also the time when what is now known as rhythm & blues was in its infancy. Many of the finest performers of the era are showcased here on studio recordings chosen both for their quality and their ability to evoke the dramatic mood of classic film noir. The cover and insert text of Jazz Noire have been carefully designed to pay homage to the hard-boiled, lurid detective fiction of the period, the perfect packaging for a compilation which will appeal both to L.A. Noire devotees and also to those looking for an atmospheric survey of the immediate post-war jazz and R&B scene.

'As a soundtrack to the black-and-white movie era, this two-CD, 50-track anthology also documents a golden age of black popular music...Welcome to retro Valhalla'5/5 --London Evening Standard

'Reverberates like the soundtrack to a Raymond Chandler novel' --Record Collector
