Smoke Notes

Arguably one of the most respected DJs and selectors in the world today (hell, he even got a MBE in 2002 for DJing and services to music), Norman Jay MBE again teams up with his brother Joey for the latest in their highly successful 'Good Times' series. Reflecting their West London base, the 'Good Times' sets have quickly developed into a series reflecting the very best, old and new, in rare groove, funk, soul, house, hip-hop, reggae and all points in between. Number 4 in the set features the usual fine selection of "soul" influenced music forms - without a doubt the brothers have a definite knack for choosing the best in "black" or "black-influenced" music (something many DJs tend to miss in equivalent selections) - with this set boasting the likes of Ten City, The Impressions, Bomb The Bass, Mica Paris, Willis Jackson, Aswad, The System, Lee Dorsey, Eddie Harris, James Brown, Brenda Russell, Billy Paul. Also included are a colourful handful of contemporary acts such as the stompy Jamieson (featuring tasty UK soul singer Terri Walker), Oi Va Voi with a delicious Matthew Herbert Big Band mix, Estelle with some lush UK hip-hop, Helsinki outfit The Five Corners Quintet with some tasteful retro European jazz, Shapeshifters with their soulful house outing "Lola's Theme", and swinging UK hip-hop outfit The Nextmen. Put together more as an enjoyable listening compilation rather than a "cut-up" mix CD, all tracks are full-length which allows the connoisseur to do their own mixing and matching if desired, which I guess is the ultimate appeal of this series - they are so well compiled and selected that they appeal to both the novice and expert alike. Like the previous three volumes in this excellent series, this is the perfect summer set for those who not only like to get their groove on, but know how to get their groove on. Recommended for all and any soul and soulful dance fans.
