Scott Grooves ft. Roy Ayers ~ Expansions ~ SOMA records UK ~ 1998

OK, I have a few Nu-Jazz/Nu-Groove kinda tracks to end up today and first up of this trio is a track that’s been covered by many an artist since it was first released in 1975 by Lonnie Liston Smith. Here we find Roy Ayers in fine form on Vibes and also supplying the vocals. It made number 68 in the UK for just one week on the chart.

Son Of Raw ~ A Black Man In Space (Sax Mix) ~ Objektivity Records US ~ 2007

I featured a little of this in one of our Christmas mixes and just knew I’d have to give it a bit more in a future show. I personally find this Dennis Ferrer track as exciting as anything I’ve heard in the past five years. Love it, love it, love it!

Louie Vega pres. Luisito Quintero ~ Quinteros Jam (LV EOL Remix) ~ 2006

Taken from the 2006 album Percussion Madness. I’ve featured a couple of tracks previously from this LP, that has some brilliant grooves, jazzy licks and something to reflect on too, after a hard day, or when the sun is peeping through the clouds. Modern day jazz funk at its best! It’s Hats off to Louie Vega for getting this project together and giving veteran percussionist Luisito Quintero a different direction, in his distinguished career.

Our new show is just hours away on JFSR – full details coming up soon.
