Martin Freeman & Eddie Piller present Jazz On The Corner - Acid Jazz
Born out of a radio show 2 years ago this VA selection is set up to launch Acid Jazz's 30th Anniversary celebrations.
Available in 3 formats vinyl (double lp), cd (double album) and download from all the usual suspects.
Here's the company blurb
When Acid Jazz founder Eddie Piller asked the actor Martin Freeman to do a jazz radio show they could hardly imagine the response. From around the world emails and tweets inundated the show and they swore to themselves that they couldn’t leave it there.
Now, two years on this compilation of their favourite jazz has arrived. From the rolling hard bop of Lee Morgan and Art Blakey, via screaming soul organ, jazz funk original acid jazz onwards to the post modern spiritual jazz of Kasami Washington, this is an incredible journey.
Released in March on double CD and Vinyl with deluxe gatefold packaging this is the album that will launch Acid Jazz’s 30th Anniversary celebrations.
