SoulSistas And SoulBruthas! Back in the early 90's I was mad obsessed with Acid Jazz. It's a movement that kinda changed my musical life. Up to that point I was mostly into Hip-Hop and American R&B. I never really listened to Jazz at all. I stumbled upon Jamiroquai's first album, most likely at a Tower Records listening station, and this new sound, for me at least, sent me on a path of some really groovy stuff. The movement was inspired by some of the rare groove records of the 70's and seemed to only last from about 1989-90 to around the time Brit-Pop exploded in 94-95. In those short years Acid Jazz was everywhere. There were some real quality bands and records. I'm not an expert and I'm sure I'm only touching on a few in this mix. But, I tried to travel around the genre with each tune. The thing I love about Acid Jazz music, as well as the scene, is it was so positive. It most certainly was about Peace, Love, and gettin' down. I hope you DIG IT!!
Peace and SOUL,
