BGP Presents Jazz Funk / Various [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
UK compilation. As the 1970s moved into the '80s, Jazz Funk was the club music of choice. It was a catch-all term that covered Funk-flavored Jazz, Boogie Soul and a healthy dose of Latin flavors. These 14 tracks cover all the bases and mix club classics and obscure winners. Club classics include Paulinho Da Costa's 'Taj Mahal' and Johnny Hammond's classic 'Los Conquistador Chocolates' from his Mizell-produced LP Gears. The Blackbyrds appear with the special Disco remix of 'Happy Music,' an early club-orientated mix of an album track, and we've selected Pleasure's floor-filler 'Glide' too. Latin masterpieces are represented by Opa, Flora Purim and Jay Hoggard and also chosen are rarities from Charles Earland plus one from ex-Pleasure guitarist Marlon McClain and another from cult Jazz hero Stanley Cowell. Beat Goes Public.
