One of the best Dancefloor Jazz comps out there! Highly recommended!

Hard to believe its been about 16 years since I last put a compilation together and nearly 20 years since I was asked to raid my collection to put together a selection of rare hard to find music from days gone by...

The music on this compilation is for me a very personal journey tracing back to my earliest experiences as both a DJ and collector on the jazz dance scene. Early memories of frequenting clubs like Jaffas above The Horseshoe on Tottenham Court Road hearing Paul Murphy play these amazing records and then going to his shop pick up tracks like Johnnie Walker’s ‘Dipping’ and Jayne Cortez – I See Chano Pozo. DJ’ing on a Monday night at The Wag in Wardour Street was really special. Working with the likes of Gilles Peterson, Sylvester, Bob Jones and Chris Bangs was a musical education. The on going friendly DJ competitiveness to break and play recently discovered ‘old tunes’ like Reverie ‘In Every Way’, Irakere’s ‘Chekere Son’ and Olli Ahvenlahti’s dancefloor fusion classic ‘Grandma’s Rocking Chair’ was all part of the appeal.
