Double LP version. Gatefold sleeve. Welcome to the second instalment of Colin Curtis's Jazz Dance Fusion compilation series for Z Records. Curtis looks back into the story and history of the UK jazz dance and jazz music scene; a movement that started, according to Curtis, back in the '70s. The sounds of funk and soul mixed with jazz, influences from Brazil, Africa, Europe, and all over the globe, textures of instrumental sounds and voices fuse to create the much-loved "jazz fusion" sound. Here we are in 2020 when interest in all forms of jazz is growing fast as DJ pioneers such as Gilles Peterson, Patrick Forge, Perry Louis, Snowboy, Nick Hosier, Alan McKinnon, Jim Bernardi, Kev Beadle, Harv Nagi, Shuya Okino, and David Patterson continue to push all aspects of jazz to converted and new audiences. So, to this compilation where Curtis showcases unreleased material and offers tracks up for the first time ever on CD or vinyl. The track listing covers Curtis's addiction to dancefloor jazz, coupled with his passion for vocal and percussive jazz, with his usual trademark Latin touches. Features Paoli Mejias, Leslie Lewis & Gerard Hagen Trio, Curtis Lundy, 8VB, Marita Albán Juárez Quartet, JD Walter, Steven Kroon, Hajime Yoshizawa, Navasha Daya, Raffaela Renzulli Ensemble, Carmen Lundy, Tino Gonzales, Grady Tate, and Jam Session Goes Latino.
