Muse Records (1972-1996) was a new yorker jazz and blues label founded by Joe Fields
During its first decade where a large part of hegemonic jazz critic starts to howl against jazz fusion trend Muse loved it and produced especially beautiful fusion albums. That's why english jazz-dance djs are played (and play still!) some Muse records delighting the dancers with their groove mixture (for example the classic "The Samba Express").
This mix presents some examples of fusion jewels played by Carlos Garnett, Eric Kloss, Dom Um Romao or Richie Cole. But Muse isn't only fusion label since Woody Shaw's "Moontrane" or Louis Hayes's "Marilyn's House" mean pure hard-bop/post-bop tracks, real jazz train driven by amazing ride. And to start mix it's still other kind of music with vocal and funky Hancock cover sung by famous Eddie Jefferson.
