Default It's Acid Jazz Week!

Acid jazz is a musical genre that combines elements of jazz, funk and hip-hop,[1] particularly looped beats. It developed in the UK over the 1980s and 1990s and could be seen as tacking the sound of jazz-funk onto electronic dance: jazz-funk musicians such as Roy Ayers, Donald Byrd and Grant Green are often credited as forerunners of acid jazz.[2] Acid jazz has also experienced minor influences from soul, house, and disco.


While acid jazz often contains various types of electronic composition (sometimes including sampling or live DJ cutting and scratching), it is just as likely to be played live by musicians, who often showcase jazz interpretation as part of their performance. The compositions of groups such as Jamiroquai, Galliano, Urban Species, The Brand New Heavies, Los Amigos Invisibles and Incognito often feature chord structures usually associated with jazz music

^ That sounds about right, fazstp.

A few years back, intrigued by the name, I bought myself a sampler of Acid Jazz, imagining that it would either be psychedelic jazz, or jazz with a hard, industrial bite. TBH, I was pretty disappointed to end up with a cd of music like this; very nicely executed, but rather too tame for me :

I actually saw the James Taylor Quartet in concert about 15 years ago and I have to say they were pretty fantastic. Never felt like the bulk of their recorded output lived up to the live experience though unfortunately.

Yeah I was briefly interested in the possibilities but you're right about the tameness. The genre didn't hold my attention for long.

I started with Red Snapper's Prince Blimey. It was alright, leaned towards the trip hop side of things.
