Soul With Jazzy Elements

Recommended Posts

With a thread on The Contemplations and the excellent Alone With No Love got me thinking that the record has some jazz flute element to it.Off the top of my head there are the obvious tracks with Jazzy elements Philly Dog by Herbie Mann,The Bottle,Karmello Brooks, Sonny Cravers I'm No Fool.I can always remember Gilles Peterson playing Elsie Mae and thinking this is mid tempo northern.Can anyone recommend any more.

Nancy Wilson End of Our love immediately springs to mind only coz shes such a great jazz vocalist anyway, always thought Rita DaCosta leaned a little towards the jazz side of things too. 

As for flutes they do crop up quite often although oft hidden within the orchestrations Darrow Fletchers What Have I got Now features flutes , creating a quite haunting sound.
