    Phyllis Hyman, "The answer is you"
  1. Feel Good Friday - Get them up now!

    A brilliant 1998 remake by Reuben Wilson:
  2. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    Bill Summers released a lot of stuff during the JF era, both solo and with the Summers Heat group. He also appears on many sessions for other JF artists, including Eddie Henderson:
  3. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    According to his bio Deon Estus was tutored by James Jamerson. Lamont Johnson was the original bass player with Brainstorm and left to make a solo LP in 1978:
  4. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    But I wonder how a Wigan audience would have responded to Hi Tension in 1979 - the clip posted on page 9 of this thread maybe gives a clue, even it if was filmed in Brixton. Would love to hear from anyone who can remember being at the Wigan event. Meanwhile, ...
  5. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    The Tony Rallo track was very big at the time. Alec Costandinos is remembered more for his camp disco (Love and Kisses) than for some other stuff that's now picking up overdue attention on the modern scene - this track from John and Arthur Simms, from a 1980 ...
  6. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    That explains the rapid unsigning of the Sex Pistols! Mr Lydon is still upset about that, as he expletes in his latest book (which is worth a read, btw). Would also explain the support given to Brenda Russell, who never fit into any industry categories. And t...
  7. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    He also turns up on a later Harvey Mason album for Arista, but I've always loved this, from 1989 - should have been a massive hit:
  8. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    A combination of memory and tenacious googling Al Matthews was for me at the time essential Saturday night listening on Radio 1 (!) and so an early education. It seems he's living in Spain these days and auctioned off his record collection about 18 month...
  9. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    Is there anyone here who remembers when Radio 1's Al Matthews along with Hi Tension showed up at the Wigan Casino? http://www.radiorewind.co.uk/sounds/discobatin2.mp3 That might count as evidence of how fluid or even non-existent the boundaries were...
  10. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    Staying with New York, I'm pretty sure we haven't had this, and this was a big tune in 1980 and since, from Revelation:
  11. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    Some mid-70s New York dancefloor action from the Rimshots:
  12. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    Quincy Jones was another of an older generation who stayed hip and in so doing gave a lot to the jazz funk scene. For instance, this from the Brothers Johnson:
  13. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    Miles Davis was already concerned about this in the mid 60s when for some reason Charles Lloyd was popular with teenagers. That came and went, but the issue of how to engage youth never did for Miles. At a different end of the scale Creed Taylor's efforts to ...
