Don't think "fusion" as in the usual electric mode of the jazz genre – think instead of the kind of cool cuts that mix together a few different modes – Brazilian and funky, vocal and groovy, modal and Latin – all of which you'll hear in this great little set! The package takes us back to the days when a straight jazz track could really set a London or Tokyo dancefloor on fire – especially if the DJ
was someone like Gilles Peterson or Sunaga T – both of whom have always been a huge inspiration to the kind of music we champion here at Dusty Groove! And here, Colin Curtis follows in very strong format
ion – uncovering cool cuts from the 70s, many of which never fully got their due – and which really expand your understanding of jazz from the time. These numbers go way past CTI, Blue Note, Prestige, and other big labels of the period – and instead mostly come from the mighty catalog of Muse Records – with cuts that include "Image" by Dom Salvador, "Murilley" by Charles Earland, "Empty Faces" by Mark Murphy, "Samba Express" by Eric Kloss, "To Let You Know I Care" by Ron Eschete, "Ponteio" by Dom Um Romao, "What's Going On" by Michele Hendricks, "New York Afternoon" by Richie Cole, "El Exi-Hente" by Harold Ousley, "Samba Do Brilho" by Bill Hardman, "The Angels" by Dom Um Romao, "Spirit's Samba" by Dave Pike, "Demon Upstairs" by Michael Carvin, "Zamba" by Walt Barr, "Someone To Light Up My Life" by Mark Murphy with Viva Brasil, and "Spirits Of Truth" by Emanuel K Rahim & The Khaliqs.
