Blue Note classics, replayed here by some of the best artists on the Japanese groove scene – including some of the key club jazz combos who've been inspired by the older work on the label! The collection is really wonderful – proof that the Blue Note groove is not only alive and well into the 21st Century, but also has plenty of room for new interpretation and new modes of jazz expression! Some of the tracks here feature electronics, beats, and dancefloor production – but just as many sparkle with the kind of spontaneous, acoustic instrumentation that Blue Note gave the world back in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. CD features remakes of work by Hank Mobley, Moacir Santos, Marlena Shaw, Kenny Dorham, Herbie Hancock
, and others – and titles include "Avila & Tequila" by Sunaga T Experience, "Mode To John" by Soil & Pimp Sessions, "Off & On" by Kyoto Jazz Massive, "Afrodisia" by DJ Muro, "Street Walkin Woman" by Jazztronik, "Night In Tunisia" by Toshio Matsuura Group, "Cleopatra's Dream" by Home Grown, and "Maiden Voyage" by DJ Kawasaki.
