    Your Top Jazz Tracks?

    Ah,good stuff...It's always a pleasure to turn folks onto the mighty Axe's work,as I stated earlier in the thread he's a real musical hero of mine .A bona fide, due paying Jazzer originally, he then became staff producer for Capitol Records and really encouraged the label to develop their black musicians. He began working with Lou Rawls, producing his 'Live' album and a succession of albums and singles including "Love Is a Hurtin' T..

    Oliver Nelson with the title track from the 'Skull Session' lp Flying Dutchman Records 1974. This my favourite album by Oliver Nelson, although 'The Blues And The Abstract Truth' lp runs it a very close second. Issued on the excellent Flying Dutchman label who released some brilliantly forward thinking progressive Jazz records in the mid 1970's. Deidre Wilson Tabac 'I Cant Keep From Crying Sometimes' from the..

    ' A youth culture left in the hands of old men'

    I'm looking forward to hearing the first young scallywag who shouts ''Piss off grandad" at me to be honest so I'll have a good excuse to smash a Frank Wilson bootleg over their head....

Trombone maestro Dick Griffin known for his work with the Strata East label and Roland Kirk ,stepping out as leader on the excellent 'Now Is The Time' album. Bunky Green 'Funk Ain't A Word' from the 'Transformations' lp Vanguard Records 1977. Had the pleasure of speaking with Al Keith who is the co-writer o..

    Help finding a sampled soul song

    Its not there, unfortunately. I checked for the OP yesterday but the track is a different remix of Piranhas by Ghost Lab and not the original by Forever MC & Its Different featuring The Wu Tang Clan. Great site though as Chas stated .I use it all the time myself.

    ' A youth culture left in the hands of old men'

    Some of us old men fought wars so the youth would have that same culture to pick up on later. Everyone is pretty tolerant these days when it comes down to different forms of music but I can readily recall having to run the gauntlet of the local skinheads who hated us for no other reason than.we liked something different to them and their culture. When I see kids now with thier spiky or coloured hair and wearing the t-shirt..

    Lololol.. Im curious,did he put on the Kaftan to administer the said beating in a more efficient manner ...freedom of movement in the limbs and all that sort of stuff to whack you even harder ? I know it's your brother and all but if so that is a dirty, rotten stunt to pull and for a so called hippy it's not very peace and love either is it now I come to think about it... Oh my lord I am literally crying with laug..

    Yes it was me ..guilty as charged with the Gong selection, in fact I posted two tracks ! hehe... I'm trying my best to corrupt the thread ! I went to Stonehenge once funnily enough when I was 15 years old and it put me off music festivals for life,thinking back now makes me shudder at the thought of all those hippies together at the same time and in the same place...There's nothing worse than a dishonest hippy as my dear ..

    I do indeed. I could be totally wrong but I've always seen instrumental Fusion as slightly more "musican's music" than Prog Rock, which isn't to say that the musicians who make Prog aren't as proficient on their chosen instruments..I just generally think with most Prog it's more song cycle oriented. Fusion almost always has jazz structures, where as Prog many times has more classical elements to it. Also the musical meltin..

    Passport 'Abracadabra' from the 'Hand Made' lp Atlantic Records 1973. German Saxophonist Klaus Doldinger's recurring jazz project Passport, started in 1971 and was often referred to as 'the European version of Weather Report'. If you're a fan of great sounding Jazz Fusion,then strap yourself in cause this is mind blowing stuff...top notch. Passport 'Jadoo' from the 'Cross Collateral' lp Atco Records1975.

    Whatever Happened To............................?

    My kid brother had one of these in the 70's and it was his pride and joy hehe..it went bloody everywhere with him I seem to recall. My mums fat mate, Tina,went and sat on it one fateful summers day when he'd left it on the sofa and poor old Steve Austin wasn't bionic anymore...he was a man,barely alive again alas, and we had neither the technology or the capability and zero chance of rebuilding him to make him better than he was..

    Hahaha. Every time I buy a new piece of musical equipment I just tell my missus it cost at least a hundred quid less than what I actually paid for it and that i'll take her out for a nice dinner with the money I've saved on the purchase... It works like a charm too I'm pleased to report ! Who said romance was dead eh ?

    Whatever Happened To............................?

    Wrong, I'm afraid ! Believe it or not some of those Top Of The Pops albums have some killer drum breaks and grooves on them and Hip Hop DJ's and producers in the know have been rinsing em' for years,also the fact that the tracks are cover versions and not the original artists songs gave the session musicians who performed on them a bit more free reign with the musical arrangements which resulted in a few nice funky surprises for..

    Never thought much of her version of People Make The World Go Round to be honest..it's a bit too clean and plastic sounding to my ears, what I generally term as 'Supermarket Funk'. Then again, 1979 was not exactly a vintage year for funkyness to be fair as recording engineers around that era seemed hell bent and determined to make everything as nice and shiny sounding as possible..a sign of the times I guess but seriously lackin..
