Sure they guys were called I.D.J. dancers in photo, saw them at the Edinburgh festival . If it is them worth watching, hope they show their old footage amazing dancers.

Interesting show. No point in comparing it to anything else as I reckon there are a lot of folk into jazz funk and soul and some similarities between music/dance scenes should be expected.Tried a couple of jazz funk alnighters when I lived in England in the early eighties,not for me but if we were all the same the world would be a boring place.

Interesting but went off on several tangents. And not really about the broader scene but concentrated on a few clubs in London. A decent watch anyway.

Yes, I agree.

Snowboys book gives a much broader and in-depth view of the jazz funk scene.

It was quite interesting from a social history point of view but not that illuminating.

Some of the statements presented as fact were highly dubious.

I did enjoy the sequence with Greg Edwards, who I listened to avidly on Capital radio. Greg was a great broadcaster but "Soul Spectrum" was pretty much back to back contemporary dance music and in no sense a look at the breadth and depth of soul music or its influences.
