Blue Break Beats

October 23, 2008

I have most of the Maestro Blue Note compilations (Sunrise/Sunset, Gettin’ Up/Gettin’ Down etc), and they’re all really nice. So I was looking for some more Blue Note stuff like that and found this. All these are not the “classical” jazz compilations, as you might expect given that Blue Note is the most famous jazz label. Rather they are a collection of tunes from artists who focus more on the beats and emphasise the funky side as opposed to the usual approach in jazz, the improvisation. Songs like these eventually gave birth to various fusion styles and even hip-hop.
