Playing tracks by
The Jazz Crusaders.
This is a very special mix, dedicated to the memory of my uncle Boyd who sadly passed away last week. The Jazz Crusaders (or just the Crusaders, depending on what year it was) was his all time favourite band... ever. Suffice it to say, there was a huge stack of Jazz Crusaders records among those that he gave to me a couple of years ago. I studied them carefully, and now they are one of my favourite bands. Here are just a few reasons why, hand picked by yours truly. The albums represented are Heat Wave, Powerhouse, the complete Lighthouse trilogy, Old Socks New Shoes, Pass The Plate and Unsung Heroes, all of which are perfect additions to anyone's crate or hard drive. I know I wasn't supposed to thank you, Boyd, but I've got to do so, again and again... You're sure to make a few people smile with this one. Enjoy, kids :)
