The Acid Jazz Special
That junction point where jazz meets soul meets hip-hop is the destination we are heading for this week. From the late eighties to the mid-nineties this genre led by labels such as Talkin’ Loud, Acid Jazz and others led the way in crossing genres and styles and led established labels such as Blue Note to reconsider their stables and twist and play with their back catalogues – most memorably in the case of US3. This week we play the likes of Jamiroquai, The Young Disciples, Incognito from the UK as well as A Tribe Called Quest, Gang Starr, Guru, De La Soul and the brilliant Gregory Porter from the States to bring the story up to date.
