Soul & Jazz Grooves From The Crates

Enjoy these deeply dug Soul & Jazz Grooves From The Crates! The track by Stanton Davis is from a brand new compilation album called ‘The Boston Creative Jazz Scene 1970-1983’, which is out on Cultures of Soul. The music on this album is culled from rare private press Jazz LPs that were pressed in small quantities of a few hundred for members of the band and the local jazz community at the time. The music here runs the gamut of funky jazz from Arnie Cheatham’s ‘Thing’ to the deep free jazz of the Phill Musra Group or the spoken word brilliance of Worlds, to the complex metric structures of Stanton Davis’ ‘Play Sleep’.

Produced by Ron Trent and Jonesy, ‘Nicci’ by Jared Hines, aka A Band Called Flash, is a stunning exploration of all things early 1980s. It sounds “like a long lost collaboration between a hip New York post-punk band and a cool downtown jazz funk ensemble” (Juno Download). It features loose grooves, subtle Fender Rhodes keys and spacey synths. His EP 'Mother Confessor' came out last year.
