Jazz J....




I've been away all week so once again nothing wordy here.


About 25 years ago I bought a great Street Sounds compilation "Jazz Juice" (which I still have of course). A couple of weeks ago I finally picked up "Jazz Juice 2", which contains an equally fine collection of jazzy grooves. These were early examples of Gilles Peterson's curating skills.   


There were eventually at least eight of these compilations I think. At this rate of buying I may one day enjoy listening to number 3 but if, by some miracle, I buy number 4 I will probably not be able to hear it!      



Jon Hendricks - I'll Bet You Thought I'd Never Find You  1975

Oscar Brown Jr. - Dat Dere  1966
