I first came across Boogaloo Joe on the Luv 'n' Haight compilation Jazz Dance Classics volume 2,
And was instanly impressed!
I decided to look for more albums by him and came across this double compilation.
I was not disappointed!
Jones is very much at home with jazz that has a twist of funk, but also has very soulful blues edge too!(Big Bad Midnight roller)
He also has a softer, mellower side. Check out Maccoll's The first time I ever saw her face, it's sublime!
If you like 70's dance jazz that is not afraid of the blues, this is for you!Jazz Dance Classics, Vol. 2
