Product Description

* As the 1970s moved into the 80s, jazz funk was the UK club music of choice. It was a catch-all term that covered funk-flavoured jazz, boogie soul and a healthy dose of latin flavours. Fantasy Records were one of the most important players and their labels provided a steady stream of dance-floor winners across all of these styles. In this CD, BGP tell the history of the music through the records that they released.

* These 14 tracks cover all the bases and mix club classics and obscure winners. Club classics include Paulinho Da Costa's `Taj Mahal' and Johnny Hammond's classic `Los Conquistador Chocolates' from his Mizell-produced LP "Gears". The Blackbyrds appear with the special disco remix of `Happy Music,' an early club-orientated mix of an album track, and we've selected Pleasure's floor-filler `Glide' too. Latin masterpieces are represented by Opa, Flora Purim and Jay Hoggard and also chosen are rarities from Charles Earland, the obscure 7-inch mix of his loft classic `Leaving This Planet', plus one from ex-Pleasure guitarist Marlon McClain and another from cult jazz hero Stanley Cowell.

* There's an in-depth sleeve note with rare photos that explains the development of jazz funk musically and as a UK club phenomenon.

Jazz funk was the music that got me started on my journey of jazz back in the late 70's early 80's, this compilation is more of a progression to the Jazz Fusion that followed the Jazz Funk era. Now with more of a jazz influence and the introduction of Brazilian samba, for me an even better scene started to develop, one devoted to jazz rather than soul. this CD has been superbly complied for those who know and love their Jazz Funk/Fusion, top tunes all the way through.
