Hironobu Jyounai selects twelve beautiful Black Jazz Records classics - featuring music by Doug Carn, The Awakening, Calvin Keys, Rudolph Jonson, among others. The set flows beautifully. Tumbling jazz, funk and soul infusions paint a soundtrack for the Black political enlightenment of 1960's Oakland. BJR is small but perfectly formed catalogue between 1971-1976 when it existed to represent a "new and fresh alternative to traditional jazz, embodying the spirit of the black/urban awakening of the civil rights period." Please Enjoy!
