    What&#39;s Gonzalez like? To be honest Sermad, I don&#39;t know many of the artists but I would be surprised if you enjoyed that set, if Freeez, Imagination and Atmosfear are typical of the others.
    You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

      Gonzales is really nice mid 70&#39;s jazz funk. Its pretty rough - But doing a bit more research and the other bands sound a bit too smoooth for my tastes.

        Safe to say CLASSIC jazz funk from 1981 onwards. Highlights for me, even though they all have a memory of when I used to hang out with the crew at the Walton Hop (and that was a good few years AFTER Jonathan King stopped DJing there, before anyone asks&#33;&#33;&#33

        Freeez - Southern Freeze, was their first release which also got comped on the best of British Jazz Funk, along with Incognitos slef titled jazz funk classic. This was way more soulful, probably due to the female vocalist, than their biggy &#39;a e i o u&#39; with Jon Rocca&#39;s painful squeal over the top of it.

        Atmosfear - bassline was sampled by SL Troopers for their track Movement. Also an absolute classic that Norman Jay used to champion in his Raregroove show days.

        Hi Tension - British Hustle was simply anthemic. I remember shuffling the white socks and slip ons to the best disco out of town hosted by Graham Dene an&#39;all.

        You can place Light of the World - London Town in exactly the same bracket.

        For me, best track is Beggar and Co - Somebody help me out. A superb example of Jazz Funk at its best. Strong brass section and an excellent group vocal harmony. Ended up being comped in the Hits compilation of the year, that being 1981.

        Jeeezuz - that&#39;s 22 years ago.

          Like Belson says, all classic Brit Jazz Funk. To be honest though i think they could have done a lot better on the track selection and dug a little deeper (which wouldn&#39;t have been hard considering that apart from the Gonzales you could probably pick up most of the OG 12&#39;s for the price of the SoulJazz comp)

                    Wasn&#39;t Trev Nelson&#39;s exlanation/excuse for the threads (or Leee John&#39;s, I forget) in &#39;Soul Nation&#39; that they figured if they looked that ridiculous, your average (white) Woolies record shopper wouldn&#39;t feel so threatened by them being black &amp; buy their stuff...which seems to have worked. Then again, I don&#39;t recall Motown acts having this problem so maybe they&#39;re just trying to justify terrible fashion sense in hindsight...

                      couldn&#39;t agree more - where&#39;s the early Factory stuff or the really interesting Brit rare groove material? i&#39;m not saying this comp doesn&#39;t include a great selection of tunes, but it&#39;s more like an &#39;obvious top 10&#39; comp that I&#39;d expect from a major label, not a lovingly-assembled Soul Jazz release.

                      i love most of the records on it regardless... half of those are charity shop records though&#33;
