Incredible new collection of World Jazz grooves, released as a 3 LP and Standard CD set.
Fresh from bringing us two incredible volumes of A Journey into Deep Jazz and providing an introduction to Black Saint and Soul Note Records on BBE, IF Music’s Jean-Claude joins forces with Victor Kiswell for new compilation, World Jazz Grooves. As you might expect, this treasure trove of music contains a generous handful of obscure and brilliant musical gems, carefully mined from all corners of the globe. From its inspired opener: Vietnam veteran Billy Bang’s visceral New York social commentary Illustration whose Watts Prophets inspired spoken word vocal is (sadly) as relevant today as it was in 1978; through to the album’s closer, a touching African township ballad titled ITwenty-Five, World Jazz Grooves takes the road less travelled to provide a jaw-dropping journey through world jazz culture.
3LP - Triple 180 Gram Vinyl housed in Gatefold Sleeve. Comes with Extra Track to the CD.
