Acid jazz is a musical genre that combines elements of jazz, funk and hip-hop,[1] particularly looped beats. It developed in the UK over the 1980s and 1990s and could be seen as tacking the sound of jazz-funk onto electronic dance: jazz-funk musicians such as Roy Ayers, Asha Puthli, Donald Byrd and Grant Green are often credited as forerunners of acid jazz.[2][3]Acid jazz has also experienced influences from soul, house, and disco. While acid jazz often contains various types of electronic composition (sometimes including sampling or live DJ cutting and scratching), it is just as likely to be played live by musicians, who often showcase jazz interpretation as part of their performance. The compositions of groups such as Jamiroquai, Galliano, Urban Species, The Brand New Heavies and Incognito often feature chord structures usually associated with jazz music. The acid jazz "movement" is also seen as a revival of jazz-funk or jazz fusion or soul jazz by leading DJs such as Norman Jay or Gilles Peterson or Patrick Forge, also known as "rare groove crate diggers" or "Cataroos". Q magazine stated "Acid jazz was the most significant jazz form to emerge out of the British music scene".[]

Origins in UK
The sound and clubs that went with it arose out of Southern England's rare groove scene of the late seventies and early eighties and various other alternative groups, including the London mod scene. It is distinguished from the Northern Soul scene (then popular in the South of England with clubs such as the 100 Club in Oxford Street) but still displayed various similarities. The name came into common parlance with the Acid Jazz label, but in reality the scene had existed in disparate forms and without a distinguishing name for some time beforehand. Journalists at the time appeared very confused by the genre and made various attempts to connect it to the London mod scene (by links with various former members of that scene, prominently Eddie Piller and the James Taylor Quartet, Taylor having formerly been Hammond Player for sixties garage band The Prisoners). The scene always had two halves, those who liked the original jazz and soul recordings and those who followed the new bands signed by labels like Acid Jazz. It is the former who still probably support their music, many of the early bands having fallen well by the wayside. Attempts to integrate the music with hip hop and jungle are now regarded by many as misguided attempts to keep the music fresh whilst leading it a long way from its starting point, attempts that were regarded with disdain by many.Wikipedia:Avoid weasel words An important gauge of the UK scene and the creation of the genre are to be found in the UK's Straight No Chaser magazine. Similarly, clothing labels like Duffer of St George were closely associated with the scene, although the

Acid jazz "right outfit" was never essential. Disc jockeys Gilles Peterson and Chris Bangs [4] are generally credited with coining the term acid jazz at a 1987 'Talkin' Loud Sayin Something' session. At the time, this was Peterson's regular Sunday afternoon club at Dingwalls in Camden, London. In his Radio 1 biography, Peterson describes how the term acid jazz came about. "We put on this old 7-inch by Mickey and the Soul Generation which was a rare groove record with a mad rock guitar intro and no beat. I started vary speeding it so it sounded all warped. Chris Bangs got on the microphone and said, 'If that was acid house, this is acid jazz'. That's how acid jazz started, just a joke!"[5] [] Notable British acid jazz bands of the 1990s included Brand New Heavies, Galliano, Incognito, James Taylor Quartet, Jamiroquai (also classified as funk and disco) and Urban Species, US3 (also classified as jazz rap), as well as dozens of less commercially successful artists. Later, Repercussions who had a top hit, Promise me nothing. According to the book The Techno Primer, the 1991 album Road to Freedom by Young Disciples was "very influential" in the genre, as the band "set the tone for this movement."[6] Other more recent groups who have produced music in this genre include Mother Earth and Down to the Bone. Several record labels have specialized in acid jazz. They include Acid Jazz Records, Ninja Tune and Mo' Wax.

International scene
In the United States notable acid jazz groups have included Groove Collective, Brooklyn Funk Essentials and Grammy nominated Liquid Soul; although during the 1990s the major contributions from the US to jazz fusion were predominantly in jazz-house (from labels such as 8 Ball Records) and jazz-rap, particularly by artists such as Guru, through his Jazzmatazz series of albums,[7] A Tribe Called Quest, Black Sheep, De La Soul, the Jungle Brothers, and Digable Planets. In Houston, in 1995, a notable acid jazz radio show, Soular Grooves, was started on KPFT by DJ Sun.[8] From Japan, notable artists included Mondo Grosso, DJ Krush, Gota and United Future Organization who released 'I Love my Baby: My Baby Loves Jazz' as well as a cover of Van Morrison's 'Moondance'; another prominent artist from Japan was the female vocalist and flautist (and daughter of jazz musicians Japanese-American Toshiko Akiyoshi and American Charlie Mariano, and stepdaughter of American Lew Tabackin), Monday Michiru. Acid jazz scene developed in Eastern Europe as well, with bands like Skalpel from Poland and Moscow Grooves Institute from Russia.

The Brand New Heavies are an acid jazz and funk group formed in 1985 in Ealing in west London.

Biography
The Brand New Heavies began in the 1980s as an instrumental acid jazz group called Brother International.[] The group came up with the Heavies name after signing their first record contract, borrowing from a liner note on a James Brown single declaring the artist "Minister of New Super Heavy Funk".[2] As The Brand New Heavies they gained a cult following in the London club scene and soon signed to Cooltempo as acid jazz replaced rare groove in clubs. The band issued a debut recording for Eddie Piller's Acid Jazz label in 1990 with Jay Ella Ruth as lead singer.[3]

Brand New Heavies A single, "Got to Give", came out on Cooltempo before the Brand New Heavies signed to Acid Jazz Records and released Brand New Heavies to critical acclaim. The band signed to a division of Chrysalis Records in the UK,[] and American distribution was picked up by influential label Delicious Vinyl, and N'Dea Davenport (who had signed an artist development deal with Delicious Vinyl) joined the group. A revamped version of the first album with vocals by N'Dea Davenport was then released, and the singles "Dream Come True", "Never Stop" and "Stay This Way", all with Davenport on lead vocals, became hits on both sides of the Atlantic, with the latter becoming a music video directed by Douglas Gayeton that saw heavy rotation on MTV. The group's appearance with MC Serch (formerly of 3rd Bass) and Q-Tip (of A Tribe Called Quest) at a performance in New York City, inspired the group to incorporate elements of hip hop music. Their next album was the critically acclaimed Heavy Rhyme Experience, Vol. 1, which included collaborations with Guru of Gang Starr and The Pharcyde, among others, but lacked any female vocals. While under management by Colin Lester's and Ian McAndrew's Wildlife Entertainment, The Brand New Heavies released Brother Sister (1994) which was the last album for a while with N'Dea Davenport, who had left to complete her solo album (which she had put on hold to join the Heavies). The album spawned more singles, though one of them, a cover of Maria Muldaur's "Midnight at the Oasis", was popular only in the UK because it was not included in the US version of the album. Siedah Garrett joined the group for their next album, Shelter (1997). It contained the minor hit, the Carole King-penned song "You've Got a Friend" that was originally made famous by James Taylor. Again, though, this song did not appear on the US version of the album. The album also contained the hit "Sometimes". The remix of "Sometimes" included the rap vocals of Q-Tip. The Brand New Heavies then released their greatest hits album, Trunk Funk - The Best of The Brand New Heavies (2000) with Carleen Anderson on vocals for some newly recorded songs, followed by the Japan only album We Won't Stop (2003) featuring a variety of vocalists and Allaboutthefunk (2004) featuring British singer Nicole Russo on vocals. For We Won't Stop album, The Brand New Heavies relied on singer/songwriter Sy Smith for the bulk of the female vocals.[4] Original member Jan Kincaid takes the lead on three of the tracks, and Los Angeles-based poet Gina Loring[5][6] makes several appearances on the album.[7] Where the Heavies typical sound had typically been more 1970s funk-styled and acoustically driven, We Won't Stop sees the band experimenting with more electronic elements and contemporary R&B.[8] The album marked the first commercial release of "What Do You Take Me For", the band's lone track featuring former flagship lead vocalist N'Dea Davenport.[9] The track would be later re-recorded in a more modern configuration with Nicole Russo on lead for the Allabouthefunk album.[10] The sound and musical arrangement heard on these first releases of "Music", "Love Is...", and the title track "We Won't Stop" were re-recorded with new leads on N'Dea Davenport's 2006 return to the band for the comeback album Get Used To It.[11] In April 2006, the Brand New Heavies reunited with N'Dea Davenport and former label Delicious Vinyl. A new album, Get Used to It was released on 27 June 2006 via Starbucks and more traditional music retail outlets. The album was recorded in New York and London; and the lead single "I Don't Know Why (I Love You)" was issued in early May. The single was notable for being one of very few late releases to feature the trademarked A Tom Moulton Mix, as he had been asked to contribute remixes. Later that year, their Heavy Rhyme Experience, Vol. 1 album track "Jump 'N' Move" featuring Jamal-ski was featured on the soundtrack for the 2006 computer animated feature film Happy Feet and the in-game soundtrack for 2004's NBA Live 2005 and 2009's NBA 2k10. The band toured at the end of 2006. The Heavies recorded a cover of "C'est Magnifique" (originally from Cole Porter's 1953 musical Can-Can) for an early 2009 TV ad by Lancme. The song also appeared in an early track listing of the Heavies' 2009 live album, but wasn't eventually included. The 2-CD Live in London was released in October 2009. The studio version of "C'est Magnifique" was released as a download and also included on a couple of various artists compilations.

Brand New Heavies The Brand New Heavies released a download instrumental album called Dunk Your Trunk in November 2011.[12] The album, recorded in only four days and described as 'funky library music' is directed at 'TV and Movie people to add to their programmes and films'. The 5-track Dunk Your Trunk Remixed E.P. was released on download on 1 May 2013. The band announced in late 2012 via their Facebook page that they will be releasing Heavy Rhyme Experience, Vol. 2 in 2013, a long talked about follow-up to 1992's Heavy Rhyme Experience, Vol. 1, where various rap artists fronted the band. The Brand New Heavies eighth studio album Forward was released on 6 May 2013. Lead vocal duties on the album are divided evenly between N'Dea Davenport, who features on the first single "Sunlight", Jan Kincaid and Simon Bartholomew, making his debut as lead vocalist on this album, and new UK vocalist Dawn Joseph.[13] While the album was produced by the Heavies themselves, as all their previous albums, there are also new collaborators, including song writers Johan Jones Wetterberg, Marc Jackson Burrows, Rita Campbell and Tim Laws and mixing engineer Toni Economides. N'Dea Davenport and Dawn Joseph now share the "female" vocal duties in live concerts. Neither is considered to be part of the core line-up, however, as the group members listed and pictured in the Forward album artwork only include Bartholomew, Levy and Kincaid.

Corduroy were a four-piece acid jazz outfit based in London, formed around twins Ben Addison (drums/vocals) and Scott Addison (keyboards/vocals), who were previously in Sire Records act Boys Wonder (Scott had been guitarist with Boys Wonder, while Ben had been the lead vocalist).[1] Joining the twins in the band were Richard Searle and guitarist Simon Nelson-Smith. Searle had been bass player with Doctor and the Medics, who topped the UK Singles Chart in 1986 with a cover version of "Spirit in the Sky". Searle had joined the Addison twins in the final incarnation of Boys Wonder, before the band gradually evolved into Corduroy in 1991, initially forming for a one-off New Year's Eve party. The self-dubbed "fabric four" primarily recorded in a film soundtrack style, and many of their tracks were instrumentals. On the release of their first album Dad Man Cat, Paul Moody wrote in the New Musical Express: Whereas the rest of the Acid Jazz roster fidget around in a world of skinny ribbed roll-necks comparing sideburn growth, Corduroy manage to swagger through the same po-faced domain with a couldnt-care-less braggadocio... Corduroy have got their collective tongue stuck firmly in someone elses cheek here and it feels staggeringly good.[2] Releasing three albums on Eddie Piller's Acid Jazz Records, they received radio airplay for their single "Something In My Eye" in 1993, but national chart success evaded them, although several singles from their 1993 album High Havoc charted in the UK Independent Chart. Their 1994 album, Out of Here, reached number 73 in the UK Albums Chart.[] They remained a popular live attraction, particularly on the college circuit. They also gained a healthy following in Japan, making the first of several trips to the country in 1993, and the following year they recorded a live album, Quattro - Live In Japan. After leaving Acid Jazz Records they signed to Big Cat Records, releasing two further albums: The New You! (April 1997) and the Rob Playford produced Clik! (August 1999). But when they discovered that their record label, Big Cat, had been dropped by parent company V2, Corduroy decided to split up. Corduroy reformed and played two sell-out nights at the Jazz Cafe in Camden, London, on 16 and 17 June 2007. Searle is not involved with the new incarnation of the band, now working under the name of Corduroy Industries. The latest news on their Myspace site states that they have completed an album of Motown covers. Ben has also released an album of Beatles covers under the name of 'Ben from Corduroy'

Years active 19921995 [] 20052011 Labels Members Pendulum, Blue Note, EMI Butterfly Doodlebug Ladybug Mecca

Digable Planets /dblHelp:IPA for English#Keyplnts/ is an American alternative hip hop trio based in New York City, composed of Ishmael "Butterfly" Butler (from Seattle), Mary Ann "Ladybug Mecca" Vieira (from Silver Spring) and Craig "Doodlebug" Irving (from Philadelphia).[] They released their debut album Reachin' (A New Refutation of Time and Space) in 1993, and their follow-up album Blowout Comb in 1994. Shortly after this release the trio parted ways, citing "creative differences",[] though they've re-united to perform shows in more recent years. Ishmael "Butterfly" Butler is now one half of the experimental hip hop duo Shabazz Palaces and A&R for their record label Sub Pop Records.[1]

History
Digable Planets' fusion of jazz and hip hop received excellent reviews and solid sales with the release of their debut album, Reachin' (A New Refutation of Time and Space), in 1993, which was certified gold by the RIAA. The album's lead single, "Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat)", in 1993 became a crossover hit, peaking at #15 on Billboard magazine's singles chart, earning gold certification by the RIAA, and winning the Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. The track peaked at #67 in the UK Singles Chart in February 1995.[] The group's second album, Blowout Comb, was released in 1994 (see 1994 in music). This album departed from their debut by including feature appearances from outside artists, such as Jeru the Damaja and Guru of Gang Starr. Also in 1994, the group appeared on the Red Hot Organization's compilation album, Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool. The album, meant to raise awareness and funds in support of the AIDS epidemic in relation to the African American community, was heralded as "Album of the Year" by Time magazine. The trio subsequently broke up due to creative differences. An additional hardship hit group member Ladybug Mecca when she dealt with the deaths of both of her parents.[2] A retrospective album Beyond the Spectrum: The Creamy Spy Chronicles was released in 2005, mixing previously released material with remixes and B-sides.[3]

Breakups and reunions


Butler established a live music hip-hop act called Cherrywine, whose album Bright Black was released in 2003 to a lackluster reception. Butler also started a project under the moniker Shabazz Palaces in his home of Seattle. The group has released two 7 song albums as well as a full length LP on Sub Pop Records,[4] all of which were met with great critical acclaim. Doodlebug is now known as Cee Knowledge and tours with a band called Cee Knowledge & the Cosmic Funk Orchestra that released two albums in limited edition on FarmHouse Records.[citation needed] Ladybug, now known as Lady Mecca, has also embarked on a solo career, releasing an album Trip The Light Fantastic in 2005.[citation needed] Ladybug Mecca also appeared on "Spreadin' Rhythm Around" on Legacy/Sony's Billie Holiday Remixed and Reimagined album. In 2008 Ladybug Mecca collaborated with eMC (Masta Ace, Punchline, Wordsworth, Stricklin) on the title track "The Show" and Del tha Funkee Homosapien's album Eleventh Hour on the song "I Got You", and also contributed the voice of Tracey Triceratops, the leader of The Dino 5, on the Dino-5 children's CD through Ropeadope Records. Lady Mecca also performed as DJ Lady Mecca on March 12, 2011 at LOLA in St. Louis, Missouri. According to Kevin C. Johnson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch pop music critic, "what stood out about Mecca's two-hour, 50-song set was her song choices, full of selections music fans don't necessarily hear every weekend at the clubs (unlike, say, DJ Solange, who totally pandered to the crowd at the gig at Exo earlier this year)." In February 2005 the trio reunited and embarked on a reunion tour, with a compilation album released on October 15, 2005.[citation needed] According to the Digable Planets' Official MySpace page, maintained by Doodlebug and Butterfly, Lady Mecca chose to not continue future collaborations with Doodle and Butter. From 2009 to 2011, Doodlebug and Butterfly toured across the U.S., Canada, and Europe. Backed by the live band, Doodlebug's Cosmic Funk Orchestra, and often with Butterfly's Shabazz Palaces or hip hop duo Camp Lo as the supporting act, they toured with other female MCs to represent the female energy that has always been a core element of the group. Digable Planets performed at Numbers, in Houston, Texas, on May 15, 2010, alongside the hip hop duo Camp Lo.[5] During an interview with the Houston Chronicle near the time of this show, Doodlebug stated that a new single would be released, called "Fresh Out", and that a new album was planned for digital release in summer of 2010.[6] The group also performed alongside hip-hop group The Pharcyde at the North by Northeast music festival in Toronto, Ontario on June 19, 2011.[7] A reunion show scheduled for December 2012 in Seattle, Washington was cancelled days before the performance. When asked in a subsequent interview about the group's status, Ishmael Butler stated "I think it's the end."[]

Hideaki Ishi ( Ishi Hideaki, born 1962 in Tokyo, Japan), better known by his stage name DJ Krush, is an alternative hip hop producer and DJ. He is known for his atmospheric instrumental production which incorporates sound elements from nature and extensive use of jazz and soul samples.

Early life
Ishi was born in 1962 in Tokyo. Ishi dropped out of school at an early age and joined a local gang, and a few years later, the yakuza. Early into his career as a yakuza underling, Ishi discovered a severed finger wrapped in paper on his desk. Later, after discovering that it had belonged to his best friend, he decided to leave the yakuza and cut ties with the criminal underworld.[2]

Career
Aside from being considered one of the pioneers of Japanese hip hop,[3] Ishi has established himself as one of the most respected artists and producers in the hip hop industry, both in Japan and abroad. Upon entering the industry, Ishi, with his experimental beats and instrumental sounds, changed the face of hip-hop at a time when it was dominated by the American rap scene.[4] He is reluctant to identify his music with any particular genre, for it would place limits on his listeners and on his talents. He has been regarded as ambient, trip hop, some combination of the two, and hip hop. DJ Krush prefers to exercise an ideological distance from the genres he is usually grouped into,

DJ Krush while maintaining a healthy appreciation for all music forms and styles.[5]

Gilles Peterson (born 28 September[2][3] 1964,[][4][5] Caen, France[]) is a British-based Swiss[6] DJ, record collector and record label owner residing in London. Via his labels Acid Jazz, Talkin' Loud, and latterly Brownswood Recordings, he has been associated with the careers of well-known artists of the 1990s such as Erykah Badu, Roni Size and Jamiroquai. After starting out on pirate radio, and having shows on various legal London-based radio stations, most notably Kiss FM dance music station, he was recruited to the BBC's youth-oriented Radio 1 in 1998. He now hosts a 3 hour weekly show on BBC 6 Music [7] every Saturday afternoon 3-6pm. Peterson is known for his eclectic musical selections, and has even been occasionally mentioned as the new John Peel [citation needed]. However whilst John Peel had an "anything goes" range of tastes displayed on his show, Peterson's focus has always been Jazz music, generally Modern Jazz, with a strong emphasis on its translation to a club environment, mixed with associated music styles. Widely acclaimed as a musical tastemaker, he spreads his influence on music listeners around the world mostly through his Saturday afternoon radio show on BBC

That club, and one of Peterson's best remembered club sessions, was Talkin' Loud Sayin' Something at the old Dingwalls club in Camden, North West London which ran from the late 1980s until March 1991. The sessions were characterised by jazz dancers in suits hats and spats, heavyweight jazz dance classics including tracks from Yusef Lateef, Pharoah Sanders, Freddie Hubbard, Airto and Herbie Hancock and the anthemic In The Fast Lane by Jean-Luc Ponty; but the jazz was fused with hip-hop and the more experimental tracks. Gilles played alongside fellow London DJ Patrick Forge at most of the Dingwalls' sessions, as well as separately at many other underground club nights and music weekenders. On 8 October 2006, both Peterson Patrick played at a one-off show at the old site of Dingwalls (now a Jongleurs comedy club). A compilation album of popular songs from the club was also released at the same time, Sunday Afternoon At Dingwalls. [citation needed]

Jazz FM
In March 1990, Peterson became a disc jockey on London's first-ever dedicated jazz station 102.2 Jazz FM. The three hour show was stripped into sections including the "Samba 60" and the "Vibrazone". Artists as diverse as the Freestyle Fellowship, Srgio Mendes and Leon Thomas would all appear on the same playlist. He was forced to leave the station after making anti-war comments during the first Gulf War.[13]

Kiss 100 FM
September 1990 saw London pirate dance music station Kiss 100 FM become legal when it acquired a licence and started to broadcast from Holloway Road in North London. Patrick Forge was then given the space to create his own show, with the two DJs continuing to work together at Dingwalls until the "last dance" on 3 March 1991. Peterson moved over to Kiss FM himself after being fired by Jazz FM. In his shows on Kiss FM he played acts as diverse as Josh Wink, Gang Starr and Horace Silver in the space of a single programme. He was then hired by BBC Radio 1 in 1998. [citation needed]

Radio 1
From 1998 to 2012, through his BBC show Worldwide - which was originally produced by longtime collaborator Benji B, Karen P (Folded Wing), Ben Cave, Beccy Grierson, Alex Kenning and currently Dave O'Donnell - Peterson continued to present a wide range of music that may be new to its young audiences. The show always presented a combination of new, older and often very rare records from the late 1950s to 1980s. Every three months or so, Peterson dedicated a whole show to older vinyl releases in a special version of his show he subtitles as Brownswood Basement; two associated compilation albums with the same name containing older personal classics have been released on the United States label Ubiquity Records's offshoot Luv N' Haight. He has been associated with two Brownswood labels - the name comes from the road in north London where his house was located. This building is

Gilles Peterson now primarily a place Peterson uses to store his huge record collection. In August 2004 the show moved from Wednesday (midnight til 2am) to an earlier Sunday slot (11:00 to 01:00) with a spectacular live outside broadcast from The Big Chill at Eastnor Castle Herefordshire featuring Bugz In The Attic performing a DJ set, and interviews with house DJ Tom Middleton and Mr. Scruff. One of the highlights of the new format BBC Radio 1 show was the special sessions from the BBC's Maida Vale Studios. These have included artists such as Roots Manuva, Bjrk and the Floating Points Ensemble [14]. In September 2006, Peterson's show on Radio 1 was moved from Sunday night to Wednesday night (more precisely the early hours of Thursday morning), 02:00 to 04:00 (GMT). The first show included a live appearance from Lupe Fiasco. The show is currently broadcast live between 2am-4am on Wednesday mornings. In 2002 he released a compilation album, "Impressed with Gilles Peterson", featuring rare and forgotten about British Jazz from the 1950-1960s, that Peterson had collected over the years. This led to many of the records being re-released to a new audience. This in turn led to a series of concerts featuring some of the artists and a documentary about the history of British jazz ("Jazz Britannia"). [citation needed] Annually, Peterson picks his favourite records of the year, known as his Worldwide Winners, which listeners of his radio show could vote on via the Radio 1 website to get down to a final top 10 list of winners. In recent years, from 2004 onwards, this has been expanded into the Worldwide Winners Awards with an event held at a London club venue; Cargo in 2004 and onto the bigger Koko in Camden in 2005, with full outside broadcast coverage by Radio 1, and expanded sections like "Best Clubnight", "Best Record Shop", "Best Compilation Album", and a special award called "The John Peel'Play More Jazz' Award" given to an artist, often newcomer, who has displayed special noteworthy work over the year. In late 2011 Peterson announced that after 13 years at the station he will be leaving BBC Radio 1, following his last show on Tuesday 27 March 2012 (more precisely early hours of Wednesday 28 March) 02:00 to 04:00 (GMT),[15] and moving to a new show on BBC Radio 6 Music.

Radio 6 Music
Following his departure from Radio 1, Gilles started a new 3 hour Saturday afternoon show on BBC Radio 6 Music [7] , beginning on Saturday 7 April 2012, running weekly from 15:00 to 18:00 (GMT), and giving him an extra hour of broadcast time.[] Like his previous Radio 1 programme, it is made by independent production company Somethin' Else for the BBC.[16][17]

Record Labels
Gilles Peterson has played an important role on three record labels. In 1988 he and Eddie Piller founded Acid Jazz Records, an influential[citation needed] label whose roster included the Brand New Heavies, Jamiroquai, Corduroy, the James Taylor Quartet and Snowboy. After growing disillusioned with the scene that grew up around the label, he went on to run Talkin' Loud, enlisting the help of fellow DJ Norman Jay who formed his own Global Village label. The label drew its name from the James Brown track Talkin' Loud & Sayin' Nothing that had inspired the name of his club at Dingwalls. The roster of Talkin' Loud included Nuyorican Soul (a side project of the producers Masters At Work), Courtney Pine, MJ Cole, Young Disciples, Incognito, Terry Callier, The Roots, Galliano and Roni Size's project Reprazent. Courtney Pine, Young Disciples, MJ Cole & 4 Hero all received nominations for the Mercury Prize, with Reprazent winning the award in 1997. Peterson's most recent record label, Brownswood Recordings, was launched in 2006. It was named after the road in North London where the house he used to live is, which he has since had to move out of after his record collection became too big, and which now acts as a warehouse for his enormous collection of vinyl records.[citation needed] To date the label has released records by British singer/songwriter Ben Westbeech, 45 piece live act The Heritage Orchestra, Japanese punk jazz band Soil & "Pimp" Sessions, Brooklyn based pianist Elan Mehler, jazz vocalist Jos James and Zara McFarlane [18]; Mercury-nominated artist Ghostpoet [19], Kenyan-British group Owiny Sigoma [20]

Gilles Peterson and electric producer Gang Colours; [21] eight volumes of a soulful compilation album series called Brownswood Bubblers, and a special Cuban project - Havana Cultura [22] - which saw Gilles travel to Havana to record at Egrem Studios with gifted jazz pianist Roberto Fonseca and a host of new Cuban talent. A second volume was released in 2011, Havana Cultura: The Search Continues, during which DJ Mala also recorded his impression, due to be released in May 2012. Taking on the role of Executive Producer, he recorded an album of new material (plus a handful of covers) entitled 'Gilles Peterson presents Havana Cultura'. Incidentally, this label should not be confused with Talkin' Loud, the previous label he was involved with, or indeed another imprint called Brownswood Records (note: Records NOT Recordings) which was used to release music from the United Future Organization as well as other Japanese associated projects.

Festivals
Peterson has made many regular appearances at music festivals across the world including Lovebox in east London, The Big Chill in Hereford and the Southport Weekender[23] in the north west of England. Away from the UK he has appeared at the Exit Festival in Serbia, INmusic festival in Croatia and in 2005 the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Gilles also curated his own stage at Montreux Jazz Festival [24] for 10 years during the 1990s. Peterson and Freshly Cut, a French event production company from Montpellier, collaborated to create the Worldwide Festival.[25] This Gilles Peterson performing in 2004 started out as a small intimate festival during the summertime in the coastal town of Ste in France in 2006. It was expanded to include a mini version of the festival in Singapore from 2008. Dipping his toe into the world of production, Peterson has collaborated with Switch (DJ) and DJ Clipz in the past, but currently works with his engineer Simbad, remixing the likes of Noro Morales and Fatoumata Diawara to date.

Groove Collective is a contemporary jazz group. In 2007 they were nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Jazz Album of the Year for the release People People Music Music on the Savoy Jazz label.

Style
Groove Collective was formed in 1990. The original members were Itaal Shur (who later went on to co-write the #1 hit Smooth for Carlos Santana), percussionist/MC Gordon "Nappy G" Clay, flutist Richard Worth, drummer Genji Siraisi, bassist Jonathan Maron, saxophonist Jay Rodriguez, percussionist Chris Theberge, trumpeter Fabio Morgera, Vibraphonist Bill Ware and trombonist Josh Roseman. After witnessing an early show, producer Gary Katz negotiated the band's signing to Reprise Records, and produced their eponymous debut album in 1993. In 1994, they appeared on the Red Hot Organization's compilation album, Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool, alongside other prominent jazz artists, Herbie Hancock and Roy Ayers. The album, meant to raise awareness and funds in support of the AIDS epidemic in relation to the African American community, was heralded as "Album of the Year" by Time Magazine. They scored two minor dance instrumental and adult contemporary hits in 1996 with a cover of The Beatles' "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" (US Dance/Club Play #45, US Dance Maxi Singles #23) and "Lift Off" (US R&B/Hip-Hop #73).[2] Groove Collective's musical style reflects the wide-ranging backgrounds and interests of its individual members. Commenting on the group's 1996 release, We the People, critic Michael Casey referred to the numerous influences at work in Groove Collective's sound, specifically the presence of Afro-pop, Latin jazz, hip-hop, and traditional jazz stylings. This mix is born of the members' varying influences, including bebop, funk, old-school hip-hop and classic soul.[3] Bassist and co-founder Jonathan Maron has acknowledged the importance of a DJ aesthetic in the music, stating that "(Groove Collective's) goal has always been to emulate the range of music a DJ plays during the course of the night at a packed club....A great DJ knows the songs that can ignite the room and fill the dance floor. Some of my favorite musical experiences have been in clubs, where you listen and realize how well all of these styles blend together into one big idiom of its own."[4] Central to the group's ethic is its insistence on live instrumentation and its ability to create and sustain grooves for a dance floor audience.

Past members

The James Taylor Quartet are a British four-piece jazz funk band, who have become renowned for their live performances. They were formed in 1987 by Hammond organ player James Taylor following the break-up of his former band The Prisoners in the wake of Stiff Records' bankruptcy. The current line-up is James Taylor (Hammond organ), Chris Montague (guitar), Andrew McKinney (bass) and Adam Betts (drums), although recordings and live performances usually feature a horn section comprising John Willmott (tenor sax/flute) and Nick Smart (trumpet), and also vocalist Yvonne Yanney.

James Taylor Quartet The band is often referred to by the acronym JTQ, and have no connection to the American singer-songwriter James Taylor.

Film theme beginnings


The James Taylor Quartet's first single, "Blow-Up" (a funked up version of Herbie Hancock's main theme from the seminal 1960s film of the same name), was released in 1987 on the Re Elect The President label, which would later become the Acid Jazz label. The track was championed by the NME and John Peel, appearing in Peel's Festive Fifty chart for 1987. The band's debut album, Mission Impossible was released the following year 1986 and predominantly consisted of covers of 1960s film themes such as "Alfie", "Mrs. Robinson" and "Goldfinger" in a rough, up-tempo, almost punk-like style, that was primarily focussed on Taylor's Hammond organ playing. Their second album, The Money Spyder (1987), was the soundtrack to an imaginary spy film, applying the band's distinctive style to Taylor's own compositions. Whilst promoting these albums The James Taylor Quartet developed a strong reputation as a live band, that remains to this day. The live set focuses on accessible rhythm driven music, that some classify as having elements of modern dance music, despite including a lot of improvised solos. During this period a contract with a major record led to them playing to ever increasing audiences. The band also recorded their signature tune "The Theme from Starsky and Hutch" during this period. This led to the release of the live album Absolute - JTQ Live in 1991, which attempted to capture the experience of the band in concert (even though it was recorded 'live' in the studio, the audience cheering being overdubbed later).

The emergence of acid jazz


In the early 1990s the band changed direction and released a string of song-based albums to appeal to the then fashionable Soul and Acid Jazz scene in the UK. They featured vocalists such as Rose Windross of Soul II Soul, Alison Limerick and Noel McKoy. McKoy became a permanent member of the band for part of this period. The single "Love the Life" reached the Top 40 and the accompanying album Supernatural Feeling (1993) reached the top 30 in the UK charts. The next album In the Hand of the Inevitable (1995), featuring Alison Limerick as guest vocalist on three songs, saw a return to the Acid Jazz label, where it remains the label's biggest selling album.

The return to funk roots


Since then the James Taylor Quartet have returned to their original style of instrumental Hammond-led jazz funk workouts on albums, that have showcased the band's instrumental talents. Cover versions such as "Whole Lotta Love", "Dirty Harry" and "Jesus Christ Superstar"' are still recorded in the same spirit as the band's debut "Blow-Up" single, but the albums are mainly original compositions. Live gigs regularly feature a vocalist and showcase songs from the soul period of the band. They received a Music of Black Origin nomination for their second live album Whole Lotta Live (1998).

Collaborations and guest spots

James Taylor Quartet The James Taylor Quartet produced a bona-fide film theme of their own, when they contributed to the soundtrack of the first Austin Powers film. As well as their own recordings, James Taylor and members of the quartet have collaborated with Tom Jones on the duets album Reload and featured on records by The Wonder Stuff, Manic Street Preachers, The Pogues, Kingmaker and U2. They were also the house band on Gaby Roslin's short-lived Channel 4 chat show. In the late 1990s, James Taylor began composing and recording library music for the Bruton Music company. A series of releases were made available for use by the media industry in TV advertisements, programmes, films etc. As this material is not available for sale to the general public it is sought after by completist, diehard fans. The James Taylor Quartet have also released three albums under the name New Jersey Kings. These are similar in style to the core funky Hammond sound of JTQ, but have tended to be recorded live in the studio resulting in a more natural yet raw sound. Some performances during 2005 included an augmented horn section and have been promoted as the James Taylor Funk Orchestra. During 2005 Nigel Price (guitar) replaced David Taylor.

Past members

i Jamiroquai /dmrkwa/ are a British acid jazz band formed in 1992.[2] Fronted by lead singer Jay Kay, Jamiroquai were initially the most prominent component in the early-1990s London-based acid jazz movement, alongside groups such as Incognito, the James Taylor Quartet, and the Brand New Heavies. Subsequent albums have explored other musical directions such as pop, rock and electronica. Their best known track is "Virtual Insanity", which won four awards at the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards. Jamiroquai have sold more than 40 million albums worldwide[3] and won a Grammy Award in 1998.[4]

Jamiroquai

History
The band name is a mix of "jam session" and "iroquai", based on the Iroquois, a Native American tribe.[5] The original band was Jay Kay (vocals), Toby Smith (keyboard), Stuart Zender (bass), Nick Van Gelder (drums), Wallis Buchanan (didgeridoo) and Alec Moran (pipeau). These are the founding members of Jamiroquai and were involved in the writing and production of the first album. The lineup of the band has changed several times, and the longest serving and now core members of the band are lead singer and songwriter Jason "Jay" Kay, percussionist Sola Akingbola (since 1994), and drummer Derrick McKenzie (since 1994). Kay was the impetus behind the formation of Jamiroquai, deciding to form the band after an unsuccessful audition to become the singer of the Brand New Heavies. Although he has said that he has attempted to have Jamiroquai treated as a band, Kay has always been at the forefront.[citation needed].

19922006: Sony Music


Jamiroquai's first single, "When You Gonna Learn", was released in 1992 on the Acid Jazz label. Following its success, Kay signed an eight-album record deal with Sony Music Entertainment. The first Sony album, Emergency on Planet Earth was released in 1993. It was followed in 1994 by The Return of the Space Cowboy. The single "Space Cowboy" gained notice on the charts and in club rotation. While Jamiroquai was growing in popularity in the UK, Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Japan, they remained relatively unknown to U.S and other international audiences. The band's American breakthrough came with the third album, Travelling Without Moving in 1996, which yielded two big hits, "Virtual Insanity" and "Cosmic Girl". The success of "Virtual Insanity" was due in part to its Jonathan Glazer-directed video, which featured Kay's dance moves and some physics-defying images. At the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards, the creative music video for "Virtual Insanity" won four awards; Best Video, Best Special Effects, Best Cinematography, and Breakthrough Video, and the band performed the song at the ceremony.[6] In 1998, Jamiroquai released "Deeper Underground", the first single from their fourth studio album, Synkronized, which also appeared in the soundtrack for the 1998 movie Godzilla. The acid jazz flavours and ethnic influences of the first three albums continued with the release of Synkronized, and Jay Kay's interest in funk and disco music were shifting the band's directions towards such. By their fifth album, A Funk Odyssey (2001), they had evolved so drastically, that some critics and listeners would remark they lost the 'Jamiroquai sound'. With the departure of more and more original band members, including Wallis Buchanan and his didgeridoo, Jamiroquai had become a very different band from that of 1992. In spite of the changes, the fifth album's first single, "Little L", reached #1 in many charts worldwide becoming their best dance hit. In 2003, Jamiroquai compiled and mixed a DJ mix album for the Late Night Tales series for Azuli Records. The track selection shows some of the band's funk, soul and disco influences, including tracks from The Pointer Sisters, The Commodores, Johnny "Hammond" Smith and Johnny "Guitar" Watson. Their sixth album, titled Dynamite was released on 20 June 2005. It reached #3 on the UK charts. The first single, "Feels Just Like It Should" was released early in June, the second, "Seven Days in Sunny June" released on 15 August 2005, followed by the third, "(Don't) Give Hate A Chance" on 7 November 2005.

Jamiroquai released a greatest hits collection, High Times: Singles 1992-2006 in November 2006. The release of this album marked the end of Kays eight-album contract with Sony. The album reached the number 1 spot in the UK

Jamiroquai album chart after its first week of release. The album featured two new tracks, "Runaway" and "Radio". On 18 September 2006, "Runaway" was given its first play by UK radio stations. It was released as a single on 30 October 2006. Kay remarked that compilation was released purely out of contractual obligation: "2006, they're out of the picture."[7] Jamiroquai have had 13 nominations for The Brit Awards, and have yet to win one.

In March 2006, Jamiroquai announced their switch to Columbia Records. Future releases will appear under the Columbia imprint.[8] In May 2006 Jamiroquai performed during the Laureus Sports Awards in Barcelona;[9] the event was later televised by NBC in June. In October 2006, Jamiroquai recorded a live session for Live from Abbey Road at Abbey Road Studios. Their performance was shown alongside those of Damien Rice and the Goo Goo Dolls on the UK's Channel 4 in January 2007. During February in 2007 Jamiroquai performed the record breaking Gig in the Sky in association with Sony Ericsson. After leaving Sony, the band began to work on their seventh project, and several collaborations and side-projects. In a very short mid-2007 interview with Jamirotalk [10], drummer Derick McKenzie expressed his satisfaction with leaving Sony as the beginning of a period in which the band will have more creative control over their own work, together with plenty of room for experimentation and lack of pressure from a record company.[11]

2008present: Rock Dust Light Star and beyond


On 11 January 2008, Jay Kay himself posted a news item in which he thanked everyone who wished him the best for his birthday, and announced that the writing process for the new album had just begun.[12] Only a day earlier, drummer Derick McKenzie posted an article on his MySpace weblog that the recording process for the same record had also begun.[13] On 15 January 2008, the band confirmed that the recording process had begun. According to the news item, eleven tracks had already been written for the new album, with more to come. As of 25 July 2010, the only known track name for the 7th album is "Rock Dust Light Star" which has been performed live and confirmed by Kay himself to be on the new album.[14] On 13 February 2008, the band announced from their website that it would perform at the World Stage of the Rock in Rio Madrid festival, being held in Arganda del Rey, Madrid with others artists who have (then) yet to be announced.[15] On 28 February 2008, Jamiroquai performed at the Khodynka Arena in Moscow, Russia at the launch of the new Audi A4 car. On 22 June 2008, Jamiroquai performed at the Wianki Festival in Krakw, Poland. On 4 July 2008, the band performed in front of a 75,000-people audience in the Rock in Rio Madrid festival. On 5 April 2009, Jamiroquai performed at the closing concert of Malaysian F1 Grand Prix in Sepang International Circuit Malaysia, and on 9 April Jamiroquai played at the Sentul International Convention Centre in Jakarta, Indonesia.[16] On 24 August 2009, Derrick McKenzie was interviewed on playvybz.com and talked about the upcoming album. He stated that Jamiroquai was then signed with Universal Records (UK) and that they had recorded more than 40 new

Jamiroquai tracks. Also the new album will be recorded live and have a style similar to the first three albums with the use of strings and horns. He claims the album will have less of a "disco sound" and will be a lot more funky and soulful. The album is uninfluenced by major record labels and will bring forth a new direction for the band. During the first week of February 2010, Jay Kay mentioned the upcoming album on Jamiroquai's Facebook site, saying, "Hi Everybody, just wanted to say how amazing it is to have so many Friends on Facebook, half a million I believe. Therefore it feels like the right time to let you know that we are alive and kicking and in the final stages of our 8th album. I really can't wait to get out there and play it for you live in the very near future. Sending you all lots of good luck and love, Jay."[17] The first week of April 2010, Jay Kay announced on the Jamiroquai Facebook page that Jamiroquai would be supporting Stevie Wonder. "I am thrilled and excited to be supporting such a luminary as Stevie Wonder, can't wait to see you all there and get to play some stuff from the new album. Love Jay". Jay Kay has mentioned on an Italian website, CNRmedia.com, that the new album, still untitled, will tentatively be released in September 2010.[18] Based on official mailing list e-mails (related to jamiroquai.com and Jamiroquai's record label) promoting a contest, Jamiroquai are now signed to Mercury Records/Universal[19] On 24 June 2010, the band played a warm-up gig at Debut London to a small crowd. The set list featured songs from all the Jamiroquai albums except for Dynamite as well as a brand new song titled "Rock Dust Light Star". On 26 June upon supporting Stevie Wonder at Hard Rock Calling Festival at Hyde Park, a new album was confirmed and stated to be released in October 2010, and the photography for it was taken in which Jay Kay posed in costume in front of the crowd behind him. On 21 July at a concert in Nmes, Jay told the crowd their new album would be out in November and Paul Turner also told Funky Tivi (a French web TV) music style of the new album will be rather funk/rock. (source : http:/ / funkytivi. jimdo. com/). On 16 August 2010 it was announced on Jamiroquai.com that the new album will be titled Rock Dust Light Star and be released in November 2010. On 1 September 2010, Jay Kay featured on The Chris Moyles Show (This edition hosted by Vernon Kay) and the Single White Knuckle Ride was played for the first time, live on air. It was met with massive critical praise from people texting the show, many of them claiming that "Funk is back". On 1 October 2010, Jamiroquai appeared on UK television's Later...with Jools Holland. Rock Dust Light Star was the first performance of the show, and was well received. They also performed Deeper Underground and Blue Skies. On 1 November 2010, they released their long anticipated seventh album, Rock Dust Light Star. Recorded in Jay Kay's home studio in Buckinghamshire, it saw a return to their earlier, less pop-like sound. Despite both singles, Blue Skies and White Knuckle Ride reaching into Top 100 charts worldwide, the album sold a mere 34,378 copies on its debut, around half the amount sold of the previous album Dynamite. On 9 June 2011, the band released a new track called "Smile" for free download on their Soundcloud site.[20] "Smile" has a sound similar to that of the early albums and has been met with high appraisal amongst fans and critics alike. The band ran a competition to choose the artwork for the cover, Jay picked the winning design which was by Australian designer Zbigniew Klej. On 18 July 2011, Jay Kay was rumoured to be joining this year's Strictly Come Dancing. Jay Kay had frequently said that this was a major goal of his. On 6 April 2012, Jamiroquai's Official Site announced the American release of Jamiroquai's seventh album, Rock Dust Light Star, in a two releases, the first, a double lp/cd bundle for release on 'Record Store Day' on 21 April 2012 in independent record stores and then a CD release on the following Tuesday, 24 April 2012. On 21 April 2012, Jamiroquai's long anticipated seventh album, Rock Dust Light Star, after a 2-year delay, received its American release in a double vinyl LP/CD bundle as a 'special release' on 'Record Store Day' at all independent record stores. A CD Version of Rock Dust Light Star was also given a wider release on 24 April 2012. This release

Jamiroquai would be the first release through a subsidiary company of Universal Music Group, Executive Music Group, a company that handles foreign music releases for U.S. Music Distribution. On 21 August 2012, Sony Music Japan announced, for the 20th Anniversary of Jamiroquai in 2013, they would release 'reissues' of their 1st 3 studio album efforts, 1993's 'Emergency On Planet Earth', 1994's 'Return Of The Space Cowboy' & 1996's 'Travelling Without Moving'. These 'reissues' would feature complete 'remasterings' of each album and have a bonus CD with all the 'B-Side material, live material & rarities' of each album era of the band. The street date for these reissues, only in Japan, was listed for 23 October 2012. But the street dates came and went and online boutiques listed these reissues on 'backorder', basically meaning they were abandoned and weren't coming out. On 16 January 2013, both the Official Jamiroquai Website & Sony Music Ireland announced, given Sony Music Japan never released them, would be releasing the 'remastered reissues' of Jamiroquai's first 3 album efforts after all in deluxe 2CD editions for the 20th anniversary of Jamiroquai in Ireland/UK. The street dates for these 3 reissues are 8 March 2013 (Ireland) & 11 March 2013 (UK). Additional features of these reissues will be the originally reported 'bonus CD' with 'B-side material, Live material & rarities' from each album's prospective era, expanded 'digipack artwork packaging' and a new 2000 word essay written by Jamiroquai frontman Jay Kay with reminisces of the band's past, present & future. As for a stateside release of these remasters, online boutiques were released in the US on 19 March 2013. It was additionally announced on Amazon.com UK that the 3 remastered Jamiroquai albums will see a 'double gatefold deluxe vinyl' release, featuring a few additional bonus tracks per album that were highlights of the original releases, on 25 March 2013 in the UK. U.S. vinyl reissues were relesason on 26 March 2013. In August 2013, Jamiroquai's drummer Derrick McKenzie appeared in a YouTube interview with drummer-writer Spike Webb, confirming the band's intention to start work on the eighth studio album in late 2013.[21]

Buffalo Man
Buffalo Man is the name of the silhouette character featured on most of the covers of Jamiroquai's releases. It was created by Jay Kay between 1992 and 1993. It is based on the Minotaur from the Greek fable 'Theseus and the Minotaur'. Jay Kay stated "I really identify with Theseus. In fact, I'd say I am the most similar person to Theseus to come out of Stretford in the past 50 years."

Origins
Buffalo Man was created sometime prior to the release of their 1992 single When You Gonna Learn. Allegedly it was originally sketched by the band's primary songwriter and front-man Jason Kay, as Buffalo Man is seemingly a self portrait silhouette of Kay wearing a buffalo hat. The mark has been used on almost every commercial (and sometimes non-commercial) release of the band's output in some form or another; usually the unique symbol is pictured unaltered, but there have been times where it is shown in a stylised manner to suit the artwork or song.

Notable variations
Over the years, Buffalo Man has seen some temporary changes or interesting thematic uses: "Half the Man", The Return of the Space Cowboy For the single "Half The Man", Buffalo Man is on the cover as a keyring with a heart in the clasp representing the fact it is a love song and the keyring itself is split down the middle in two halves to represent the song title. Buffalo Man also has a silver heart. "Space Cowboy", The Return of the Space Cowboy For the single "Space Cowboy", Buffalo Man is present on the cover as a shaped cigarette paper for a half-complete cannabis joint, in reference to the song's praise of the drug. "Virtual Insanity", Travelling Without Moving For the single of "Virtual Insanity", Buffalo Man appears in the place of the Ferrari horse in an homage to Jason's love of sports cars. For the album cover to Travelling Without Moving, the artwork is similar, but takes on an embossed effect and is seen on a metal grille.

Jamiroquai "Cosmic Girl", "Everyday" For these two releases, Buffalo Man is pictured with a star over his heart and two intersecting orbital rings. Synkronized While the design remained fundamentally unaltered, Buffalo Man has been turned into a laser-cut mirror and photographed from interesting angles by Midori Tsukagoshi. On some editions, for the disc itself, no ink has been used on the character, but the same stone background found on the front cover has been used for the rest of the disc, thus allowing the consumer to recreate the photographed effect. A Funk Odyssey For this album, the Buffalo Man was notably absent from the cover; instead, the laser lights formed an outline of the Buffalo Man logo, which could be seen much more clearly in the album's liner notes. Dynamite The US release and the double-disc Australian Tour Edition featured a gold Buffalo Man. Other releases saw a picture of Jay Kay instead. Rock Dust Light Star The letter "i" in the title is replaced with the Buffalo Man, making the first appearance in a Jamiroquai album cover since 1999's Synkronized (not counting the alternative artwork for Dynamite). The US cover for the album features a glossy yellow Buffalo Man standing upon a glowing floor.[22] The vinyl release also features another cover including the Buffalo Man.

Text logo
Just like the Buffalo Man, the Jamiroquai text logo has also had several variations depending on the theme. The oldest version of the logo is the The regular text logo. one seen on the Acid Jazz Records release of When You Gonna Learn. In comparison to the current text logo one can see that the old Acid Jazz Records version of the logo was more angular at points, together with the letters being much thinner. Several variations of the current logo also exist. Releases of "Cosmic Girl" and the promo CD of "Everyday" had replaced the dots above the 'i' letters with stars. Other slight, temporary variations include a slight vertical stretch of the typeface, as seen on the cover art of A Funk Odyssey and Rock Dust Light Star.

Us3 is a jazz-rap group founded in London in 1992. Their name was inspired by a Horace Parlan recording produced by Alfred Lion, the founder of Blue Note Records.[2] On their debut album, Hand on the Torch, Us3 exclusively used samples from the Blue Note Records catalogue, all originally produced by Lion.

History
Us3 is the brainchild of London-based producer Geoff Wilkinson. Formed in 1992 alongside production partner Mel Simpson, Us3 had two previous incarnations. The first, a limited edition white label 12" release in 1990 called "Where Will We Be In The 21st Century". The release garnered the attention of independent label Ninja Tune, resulting in NW1's 1991 12" "The Band Played The Boogie" featuring UK Rapper Born 2 B. It sampled a dancefloor tune of the burgeoning jazz dance scene, Grant Green's "Sookie Sookie", originally released on Blue Note Records. London's Kiss FM added "The Band Played The Boogie" to its playlist and Wilkinson received a call summoning him to EMI Records's offices in London.[citation needed] Wilkinson avoided a lawsuit and was granted rights to the archives of Blue Note Records [citation needed]. One of the resulting demos, recorded in March 1992, was "Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia),"featuring UK Trumpeter Gerard Presencer. It sampled Herbie Hancock's Cantaloupe Island. Two years later, it entered the US top ten and was included on Hand on the Torch, the first Blue Note album to achieve Platinum status (1,000,000 sales) in the USA.[citation needed]

Us3 After several world tours with Us3, Mel Simpson left the group for other endeavours. Wilkinson initiated work on a second album in 1996, marshalling New York rappers KCB and Shabaam Sahdeeq to replace Rahsaan Kelly, Kobie Powell, and Tukka Yoot for the 1997 release Broadway & 52nd. The Blue Note samples became more embedded in the grooves and experimental tracks like "Snakes" (in 5/4) and the spoken-word "Sheep". More touring followed, but personnel changes within Blue Note's parent company, Capitol Records, allowed Wilkinson to leave and sign to Sony, working with the A&R executive that initially signed him in 1992.[citation needed] . Blue Note samples were not included and two new vocalists joined the group: rapper Michelob, and singer Alison Crockett. However, before the album was complete, a major personnel change at Sony left Us3 in limbo.[citation needed]. Eventually the third Us3 album An Ordinary Day in an Unusual Place was released in 2001 by Toshiba EMI in Japan and Universal in Europe. The album itself represented a new direction for the group's sound, incorporating elements of drum 'n bass, Latin, and Indian music into the mix. Several European and Japanese tours took place throughout 2002, but once again there were major label personnel cuts that left Us3 without a label.[citation needed] Eventually a deal was concluded and the fourth Us3 album Questions was released in Japan by Toshiba EMI in 2003. Brooklyn rapper Reggi Wyns and London-based South African female singer Mpho Skeef were the featured vocalists. Questions was the first Us3 album to be released independently (outside Japan) on the Us3.com label. Two tours of Europe in 2005 resulted in 50 performances in 14 countries. After the tour, the eclectic more jazz-influenced album Schizophonic was recorded. All members of the Us3 live band were featured, including Chris Storr, Ed Jones, Neville Malcolm, DJ First Rate, Mike Gorman, Sean Hargreaves, John Crawford, and Ernie Cranenburgh. Schizophonic also featured two new rappers, Akil Dasan and Gaston, both of whom Wilkinson found at New Yorks underground hangout, the Nuyorican Poets Caf. The Us3 band toured again, playing in Russia (Moscow and St Petersburg) for the first time. The 2007 album Say What!? once again included rappers Akil Dasan and Gaston and added 21 year old R&B vocalist Adeline Petricien. In 2009 Us3 released the grittier more hip-hop influenced album "stop. think. run" featuring spoken word artist turned rapper Brook Yung and Sene. The live band performed 39 shows in 17 different countries. Influential US hip-hop website RapReviews.com made "stop. think. run" the 7th best hip-hop album of 2009. October 2011 saw Us3 release their 8th album Lie, Cheat & Steal, featuring NY based Puerto Rican rapper/spoken word artist Oveous Maximus, and UK rapper (& MOBO Award winner) Akala. During the same month, the 8-piece live Us3 band embarked on a European Tour in promotion of the album. 2013 marks the 20th anniversary of the release of "Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia)" and the album "Hand On The Torch", and a remastered package with new remixes will be released in celebration. A new album will also be released titled "The Third Way (Hand On The Torch Vol II)" featuring rappers KCB, Tukka, and Akil Dasan.

Young Disciples
Young Disciples was a British / American acid jazz band, formed in London in 1990 by Carleen Anderson (vocals and keyboards), Marco Nelson (bass, guitar and organ) plus Femi Williams (percussion and programming). Their most famous hit was the single, "Apparently Nothin'" (Talkin' Loud, 1991), which helped launch Anderson's solo career when the band split up.

History
The group formed in July 1990 after the American born Anderson and her young son, Bobby Anderson, relocated to London, and met with Nelson. They signed to Talkin' Loud Records and released their first single "Get Yourself Together". It reached #68 in the UK Singles Chart in October 1990.[] This was followed by "Apparently Nothin'", which became a #13 UK hit and brought them to national attention. An album followed, Road to Freedom (1991), and prompted their record label to cash in on their by releasing a remixed version of "Get Yourself Together". In 1992, the group appeared on the Red Hot Organization's dance compilation album, Red Hot + Dance, contributing an original track, "Apparently Nothing (The Re-Rub)." The album attempted to raise awareness and money in support of the AIDS epidemic, and all proceeds were donated to AIDS charities. The group were part of the burgeoning acid jazz scene, according to the book The Techno Primer setting "the tone for this movement",[1] but also maintained links with the British hip hop genre, with many up and coming rappers of the day recording with them - MC Mell'O', Outlaw Posse and Masta Ace all guested on tracks over their career. The group also remixed tracks for other artists, although in reality this was usually either Nelson or Williams or both. The Road to Freedom album was co-produced, recorded and mixed by Dilip Harris/Demus at Solid Bond Studios (Paul Weller's personal studio) with guests Fred Wesley, Maceo Parker, Mick Talbot, Paul Weller, Steve White, Max Beesley, and IG Culture. It reached #21 on the UK Albums Chart.[] Anderson left the group in 1992, using the success of "Apparently Nothin'" to earn herself a solo recording contract with the larger Virgin Records company. Following this, the group disbanded, although the name was still used for remix production for many years. Nelson and Williams continued to work behind the scenes in the music industry. In 1999, a new version of "Apparently Nothin'" was released with Carleen Anderson and The Brand New Heavies.

Directions In Groove
Directions In Groove (DIG) are a popular Australian acid jazz band originally from the suburb of Redfern in Sydney, who produced several distinctive acid-jazz / groove / funk albums in the 1990s. DIG released several albums on the EMI Australia and Polygram labels, with "Speakeasy" and "Deeper" achieving double platinum status. DIG have also toured the world, playing alongside artists such Herbie Hancock and Bootsy Collins. The original DIG lineup featured keyboardist and vocalist Scott Saunders, saxophonist Rick Robertson, guitarist Tim Rollinson, bassist Alex Hewetson and drummer Terepai Richmond. The band's most popular tracks include "The Favourite", "Reinvent Yourself", and "Hip Replacement". Hewetson was replaced by Samuel Dixon after he joined Swoop. DIG were also famous for their live performances at The Basement, a club situated in the heart of Sydney, near Circular Quay which has been a landmark of the Australian music scene since the early 1970s. The original members of the group reformed in the wake of playing to a packed crowd in June 2008. They subsequently recorded their fourth studio album (the first in 13 years). The new album "Clearlight" was released on 14 October 2011. Rolling Stone magazine once stated "DIG are the future of Australian music. They know what to do and how to do it."

Dodge City Productions

Dodge City Productions


Dodge City Productions (DCP) were a British hip hop/Acid jazz group based in London formed by IG Culture (real name Ian Grant) and DJ Dodge (real name Roger Drakes). They were one of the leaders of the Acid Jazz movement, and also received much acclaim and success for their remixes, usually done as "City Lick". The group split in the early 1990s, and both members went to have further success in the music industry as solo artists.

History
The group formed in 1991, and signed to the 4th & Broadway record label, their first release being the single Ain't Going For That (4th & Broadway, 1992). Further singles followed, and then the group released their debut album Steppin' Up and Out (4th and Broadway, 1993). At this time, the British scene was split between the hardcore music of groups like Hardnoise and Gunshot and the more Jazz influenced style of groups like the Young Disciples or Outlaw Posse, often referred to as Acid Jazz. DCP had strong ties to the British hip hop scene, and the album featured guest vocals from Bello B of Outlaw Posse and MCM of Caveman. The group were also much in demand as remixers, providing remixes under the name of "City Lick" for respected artists like Gang Starr and Digital Underground. Both Grant and Drakes continued to have successful remixing careers long after the DCP partnership was dissolved, following the release of their debut album.

Later careers
Following the split of DCP, Grant decided that he wanted to try his hand at running a record label for British artists, an idea that he had had whilst still a member of the group [1]. This started with the creation of the One Drop Interrouter label, and led to Grant becoming well known both as label runner, producer and artist in his own right. He has worked under a variety of pseudonyms in his career, but usually retains the name IG Culture.

Koop is an electronic jazz duo from Sweden, consisting of Oscar Simonsson and Magnus Zingmark.[2] Koop won a Swedish Grammy Award in 2003 for the album "Waltz for Koop", and received a Gold certification for sales of their most recent album, Koop Islands. Their orchestrated sound is achieved by slowly putting together thousands of small clips from records until the songs are ready, which helps explain the long time it takes to make a Koop album. Vocals have been provided by singers such as Ane Brun, Yukimi Nagano, Hilde Louise Asbjornsen, Rob Gallagher and Mikael Sundin. In 2007, their song "Koop Island Blues" was featured in a trailer for the videogame World in Conflict called "Destruction Blues".[3] It was later featured as the loading screen music in game. In 2009, it made its return in World in Conflict: Soviet Assault trailer called "Destruction Blues II".[4] In 2009, "Koop Island Blues" was featured in American TV show So You Think You Can Dance. The song 'Strange Love' was also featured in a commercial for Coca Cola.[5] Also in the same year, their song "Koop Island Blues" was featured as the intro music for the videogame The Saboteur released by Electronic Arts for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in 2009.[6]

Education & Travels


In 1987 he moved to Holland to study jazz saxophone and flute at the Amsterdam School of Arts (Hilversum Conservatory, now AHK). There he was taught by Ferdinand Povel, Friederike Darius and Rob Madna. During his time as a student at the conservatory Praful was involved in several bands including: Good Move Praful & Alchemy and Coco, his first experiment with Jazz Fusion and Latin Music After receiving his Conservatory degree in 1992 he spent 6 months in India in the Ashram of the enlightened teacher Osho, meditating and learning the Indian Bansuri. It was during this time that he took the spiritual name 'Praful' which he describes as symbolic of 'a new beginning' and meaning "blossoming".[]

Career
Following his travels to India, Praful spent 10 months in Brazil where his musical style took on heavy influences of Samba. Upon returning to Amsterdam in 1993, he worked mainly with Brazilian and Latin groups and artists including: Treme Terra Nippy Noya Saoco Armando Peraza Gerardo Rosales

From 1997 on he was drawn to electronica and newer developments in music like trip hop, dance and drum and bass. In 1999 Praful joined the experimental dance formation Project 2000, a drum and bass group which experience regional success in Holland. That year Project 2000 won the prestigious Dutch Heineken Cross Over Music Award. 1999 also saw the release of the Project 2000 album 'It's about time' and 2 singles with Universal/Polydor. From 1997 until 2002 he worked as reed player and composer with 'Bayuba Cante', an international group mixing Afro Cuban Santeria-roots with flamenco, rumba, Indian music, funk and jazz, with 2 albums released (Network-DE) and tours in Europe, Cuba and Canada. In 1999 he released his first solo album, the meditative 'Touched by Love'. In that year he also started following lessons in Bansuri (Indian bamboo flute) with Indian Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia, who continues to be his teacher and great inspiration. In 2001 Praful signed a deal with Dutch Indie label Therapy Records, for which he released 3 albums and several singles and vinyls until 2007. The international success of 'One Day Deep' made Praful a household name for Chill-, Jazz-, Dance- and Crossover-Fans. The album was produced and recorded by Praful with the producers duo Adani&Wolf, with guests Afra Mussawisade (percussion, Iran/Germany), Ted de Jong (tabla, Holland), Adrian Elissen (Spanish guitar, Malta), Jose Lopretti (bass, Uruguay) and Brazilian singer Lilian Vieira (Brazil/Zuco 103).

Musical Styles and Influences


Praful was influenced by pop music from a young age. Early saxophone influences included Jazz artists like Michael Brecker, Bob Berg and Wayne Shorter. During his studies at conservatory Praful began to be affected by the musical styles of John Coltrane and Charlie Parker. He draws influence from many other non-saxophone instrumentalists. He lists Pat Metheny as one of his strongest influence saying "..he always tried to play guitar [as if] he was a reed player."[] Metheny's earlier works exhibited a blend of new age music, fusion and Brazilian which would also be exhibited in Praful's own music. Primarily a jazz musician, Praful has recorded music from many different genres including pop music, urban, smooth jazz, new age, Afro/Cuban, Latin music, Santeria, flamenco, rumba, Indian music, funk, bosa nova, acid jazz.

Raydio was an American funk and R&B vocal group formed in 1977, by Ray Parker, Jr., with Vincent Bohnam, Jerry Knight, and Arnell Carmichael.

Career
The group scored their first big hit in 1978 with "Jack and Jill", which was taken from their self-titled debut album. The song peaked at #8 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, and reached #11 in the UK Singles Chart,[] earning a gold record in the process. "Is This a Love Thing" peaked at #27 in the UK in August 1978.[] Their next successful follow-up hit, "You Can't Change That" was released in 1979, and lifted from their Rock On album. The single made it up to #9 on the Billboard chart that year. In September 1979 they participated in an anti-nuclear concert at Madison Square Garden. Their performance of "You Can't Change That" at this show appears on the No Nukes album. By 1980, the group had become known as Ray Parker Jr. and Raydio, and they released two more albums: Two Places at the Same Time (1980), and A Woman Needs Love (1981). These spawned another two Top 40 single hits ("Two Places at the Same Time" - #40 in 1980; and "That Old Song" - #21 in 1981). Their last, and biggest hit, "A Woman Needs Love," was also released in 1981, and went to #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Raydio finally broke up in 1981. Parker started his solo career, scoring six Top 40 hits, including the hit singles "The Other Woman" (Pop #4), and "Ghostbusters". "Ghostbusters" was a title track of the box office hit movie Ghostbusters. The single went to #1 for three weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. Knight went on to have a moderately successful solo career of his own, later forming Ollie & Jerry, with Ollie E. Brown (who had been a session drummer on all of Raydio's albums) in the mid-1980s. Their two biggest hits came from soundtracks. "Breakin'... There's No Stopping Us" was the theme to the motion picture Breakin', and hit #9 on the Hot 100 and #1 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart. Their second single "Electric Boogaloo" (from the movie Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo), did not enter the Hot 100, but did climb to #43 on the Dance chart.

Schleigho
Schleigho is a four-piece band centered around New York City, consisting of Jesse Gibbon (keyboards), Suke Cerulo (guitar, flute and saxophone), Erik Egol (drums) and Drew McCabe(bass). Their music could be described as a fusion of acid jazz and funk, and is mostly instrumental and improvisational.

Bassists
While keyboards, guitar and drums have remained consistent, Schleigho has featured several bassist over the years. Earlier albums including 'Farewell to the Sun' and 'In the Interest of Time' featured originally member Drew McCabe on bass. Taking Back Sunday bassist Matt Rubano replaced McCabe in 2000 and played with Schleigho for about a year. During that time he appeared on studio album 'Continent'. Paco Mahone also played with Schleigho for several years after Rubano left, appearing on live album 'Live at Ho-Down 2000' as well as an unreleased album that was made available on their webpage [1].

Ho-Down
After the un-official first Ho-Down in the backyard of Eric Krasno (of Soulive) in 1997, Schleigho began a festival that would run for three years in Wendell, MA in the middle of the forest. These groundbreaking line-ups included Lettuce, Boud Deun, The Slip (band), Soulive, Derek Trucks Band, Lake Trout (band), Jazz Mandolin Project, Actual Proof, The Hosemobile, Moon Boot Lover, Bob Moses, Yolk, Birth and many others. The festivals focused on the community of highly acclaimed bands in the genres of jazz, funk and improvisational exploration. Schleigho's 2001 album, 'Live at Ho-Down 2000' features live performances from the 2000 Ho-Down with special guests on several tracks including Derek Trucks, Kofi Burbridge and Joshua Smith.

Current Status
Most members are currently playing in other projects. Jesse plays Latin Jazz in the NYC area and was in the touring band for Teddy Geiger, along with playing gigs with Jen Durkin and Bombsquad. Suke plays with Lynch and has several other projects along with his teaching job at NYC guitar school. Erik teaches near Croton, NY. Drew teaches music in the Catskills and is married with three kids. Since 2004, Schleigho has only played sporadically, with shows featured a rotating cast of the above bassists. A pair of shows in late 2007 featured Matt Rubano back on bass for the first time since May 2000. They played in Syracuse and Buffalo on November 30 and December 1, respectively. Most recently they played in Albany on November 14, 2009, and at The Harvest Jam in Warsaw, NY in September 2010.

Though album sales in the U.S. and Europe have levelled off since the early 1990s, the group continues to attract a loyal fanbase. The group is also very popular in Japan.

History
Although Swing Out Sister are currently a duo, they began as a trio in the UK. The group was formed by Andy Connell (keyboards) and Martin Jackson (drums), and they were later joined by Corinne Drewery (vocals). The group's name came from the title of a 1945 movie starring Arthur Treacher, called Swing Out, Sister, and they claim they chose the name because it was the only thing the band could agree on, in that they all hated it[citation needed]. Both Connell and Jackson had been playing in other bands prior to forming SOS, while Drewery was a fashion designer and model before she became the band's lead vocalist.[2]

Beginnings & Debut Album It's Better to Travel (19851987)


Together with their producer, Paul Staveley O'Duffy, they signed with Mercury Records. Prior to their first album, they released the single "Blue Mood" in the UK in November 1985. However, it did not chart. In late 1986, the single "Breakout" was released. It reached the number four position on the UK Singles Chart in November 1986[3] and number six on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States in November 1987.[4] Consequently, when they released their debut album, It's Better to Travel, on 11 May 1987, it reached number one on the UK Albums Chart.[5] The album registered with listeners for its mix of jazz and electropop, with a blend of real horns, synths (arranged subtly, to sound like strings), drums, and xylophones, scored by producer/arranger Richard Niles. The follow-up single to the effervescent "Breakout" was the brooding "Surrender", which featured a trumpet solo performed by John Thirkell. It rose to number seven on the UK charts in January 1987.[6] The next single was the more serious and jazzy "Twilight World". This song was the subject of many remixes and was a dance club favourite worldwide. The final single "Fooled By a Smile" returned to the upbeat pop orientation characteristic of "Breakout". The group were subsequently nominated for two American Grammy Awards in 1988: Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Performance by a Group or Duo ("Breakout"). In addition to long-time partner O'Duffy as well as Thirkell, Swing Out Sister also have enlisted the talents of saxophonist Gary Barnacle (who with Thirkell also comprise the Henpecked Horns known for their work with Level 42); percussionist Luis Jardim; guitarist Tim Cansfield; trumpet/fluegelhorn master Jerry Hey; and songwriter-arranger Jimmy Webb.

Kaleidoscope World (1989)


Original member Jackson left the group during the making of the second album, Kaleidoscope World. Although the liner notes give "special thanks to Martin Jackson" and his co-writing credits appear on the songs "Tainted" and "Between Strangers", they also point out that "Swing Out Sister are Corinne Drewery and Andy Connell." Drewery and Connell have been the core group on all subsequent albums. After leaving Swing Out Sister, Jackson later worked for Frank Zappa. Kaleidoscope World was released in May 1989, achieving critical acclaim and UK Top 10 success. Their turn away from contemporary styles towards retro musical sources on this album would establish the musical path that they would continue to follow with their subsequent albums. The duo found inspiration in Easy Listening music, such as Burt Bacharach, as well as songwriter Jimmy Webb, who arranged two tracks, "Forever Blue" and "Precious Words". The incorporation of an orchestra to their recordings realised their sound in a richer, fuller way than their previous effort which relied more heavily on synthesisers. Consequently, this album featured arrangements and songwriting more classical in inclination. The lead-off single "You On My Mind" featured a more sophisticated blend of musical components (the video was strongly inspired by the 1968 cult film The Thomas Crown Affair) than their previous efforts while the upbeat tone of "Breakout" was echoed in the lead U.S. single "Waiting Game". Further singles included "Where in the World" and "Forever Blue", which featured a sample from the John Barry score from the film Midnight Cowboy.

Get in Touch with Yourself (1992)


Now a duo of Drewery and Connell, Swing Out Sister put out their third album, Get in Touch with Yourself, in June 1992. With strong dance rhythms reverberating throughout the entire album, tracks draw influences from 1960s and 1970s jazz, pop, soul, and funk, including a breezy cover version of the Barbara Acklin classic "Am I the Same Girl?" (which became their last US hit, reaching No.1 on the adult contemporary chart). The album's title track, a blend of 1970s soul music and modern pop, gained the duo heavy airplay on smooth jazz radio and was a crossover hit, gaining airtime on adult contemporary stations as well. The musical influences of Stevie Wonder, The Jackson 5,

Swing Out Sister and others would become evident on this album but continue on through their later releases. In line with the album theme, Drewery also grew out her hair from her trademark bob which had become a visual signature for their early years.

88

The Living Return (1994)


Numerous changes were afoot by the time the fourth album, The Living Return, was released in September 1994. The replacement of producer Paul O'Duffy after initial studio sessions with Ray Hayden contributed to a looser, rawer feel to the songs that were often the results of studio jam sessions. Though Drewery and Connell still led Swing Out Sister, additional musicians (including former 52nd Street bassist Derick Johnson, Pa'lante percussionist Chris Manis, Jazz Defectors drummer Myke Wilson, and trumpet player John Thirkell) increased their group to ten members that replicate the live performances that had been captured on the Japan-only release Live at the Jazz Cafe. The album featured the single and Delfonics cover song "La-La (Means I Love You)", which was also included on the Four Weddings and a Funeral soundtrack.

Shapes and Patterns (1997)


Few of the band's releases charted highly on the pop listings in Western countries after the successful debut album (though they became radio-airplay staples on jazz stations). The band, however, became extremely popular in Japan. Their song "Now You're Not Here" (from their fifth album Shapes And Patterns, one of several released in Japan before other parts of the world) was used as the theme to a Japanese TV program, and was ranked at No.1 in the Japanese chart and received a Japanese 'Grand Prix' (the equivalent of a Grammy Award) for best international single in 1997. Shapes and Patterns was first released in Japan in March 1997, and then in Europe and USA the year after. Producer Paul O'Duffy, who co-wrote half of the songs, was back at the helm. As an orchestra was once again employed (led by Gavyn Wright), the lush arrangements characteristic of Kaleidoscope World resurfaced. The liner notes, written by composer/singer-songwriter Mary Edwards, point out the influences of Bacharach, Webb, and John Barry are perceptible in the string arrangements and Latin rhythms, as well as Minnie Riperton, Rotary Connection and The 5th Dimension. The album included a cover of Laura Nyro's "Stoned Soul Picnic" as well as the original version of "Better Make It Better", which appeared in a different mix on their previous album. A pervasive longing marks songs such as "Now You're Not Here", "Somewhere in the World" (their final US chart entry to date), "You Already Know", and "Icy Cold as Winter". This album would also mark the beginning of the duo's use of Japanese musicians in their studio sessions.

Filth and Dreams (1999)


Filth and Dreams, their sixth album, proved yet again that Swing Out Sister were eager to reinvent themselves. The album was released in Japan in March 1999, and it remains the only album not released in any other country. This album featured stronger jazz leanings than some of their early pop-oriented albums, and is restrained in mood. The track "Who's Been Sleeping" was promoted as a single and released with several remixes. For this record, SOS adapted to the growing popularity of hip-hop in the late '90s. "Who's Been Sleeping" kicks off the record with an aggressive beat and a few hip-hop flourishes (such as Drewery's counting and uttering "Yeah..." in the background.) The rest of the record incorporates such sounds a bit more subtly, through the soaring retro stylings of "Closer Than the Sun" and "When Morning Comes" to the excitable lounge of the title track to the mid-tempo trip-hop of "Invisible" and scratch-laced "Sugar Free." Traditional SOS sounds are challenged successfully with the darkly dreamy "If I Had the Heart" and "Make You Stay." Background noises, from telephone conversations to child's play, also enrich the record and give the listener much more to cue in on. Drewery strays out of the usual love lyrics and colours a portrait of a darker world (as the title indicates) by singing about more urban subjects such as drugs (the

Swing Out Sister eerie "Happy When You're High") and prostitution ("When Morning Comes"). Filth and Dreams is the first SOS record not released in their native England, and is currently the most difficult CD to find.

Somewhere Deep in the Night (2001)


A seventh album, Somewhere Deep in the Night, was recorded in France, and released in May 2001 in Japan (with subsequent release in Europe and U.S.) It was dedicated to their friend Kazuhiko Yanagida. While it is quintessential Swing Out Sister, with lush, brassy and stringy arrangements, the melodic tunes which often feature melancholic, languid, or introspective atmospherics and is more sombre in tone. Many of the tracks are instrumental, or only feature vocal harmonies without lyrics. One song even features a French spoken-word monologue. O'Duffy, who produced the album, also has co-writing credits on all the songs, and provided backing vocals along with Connell and Cansfield. Due to declining sales, their record label Universal dropped them from their contract in America. Consequently, they signed on with Shanachie Records.

Where Our Love Grows (2004)


Undeterred, the band bounced back with their eighth studio effort, Where Our Love Grows. It was released in Japan on 28 April 2004 with the UK edition following in July. GQ Magazine reviewed it and called it "indisputably their finest record to date". The album features a return to a rich, upbeat retro-sound that fuses jazz, soul, R&B, Latin, and easy listening music. Samples of Roger Nichols and The Small Circle of Friends and Herbie Mann were incorporated also into some songs.

Beautiful Mess (2008)


Late 2005 saw Swing Out Sister return to their studio in London to commence recording of their new album. The band planned on making a second tour of America in 2006 however due to recording commitments this had to be cancelled [citation needed]. In 2006 they composed incidental music for the ITV1 drama The Outsiders, which featured Nigel Harman. August 2007 saw a new single "Secret Love", co-written by Morgan Fisher. The new album from the band was entitled Beautiful Mess and was released by the Japanese record company Avex on 27 February 2008. The title is taken from one of the tracks on the album. Prior to its release in late December 2007, two other tracks were made available for download: "Butterfly" and "Something Every Day". The album was released in the U.K. in August 2008 and in the U.S. in May 2009, reaching the Top 5 on the Jazz Album chart in the US.

2008/2009 Asia tour


In 2008 and 2009, Swing Out Sister went back on tour and appeared at the Jakarta Convention Center then toured several venues in Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Fukuoka and in the Philippines.

2012 25th Anniversary


2012 marks the 25th Anniversary of the group's first album, "It's Better To Travel". This album will be reissued on July 16, 2012 as a double cd set including the original album plus B-sides, rarities, and remixes.

Tokyo Stories, is a DVD from the group's 2010 performance at Billboard Japan. This is a Region 2 DVD and is set to be released on July 18, 2012.

Career
In October 1998, "Would You...?", a track marked by its distinctive sampling of a woman's voice saying "I've noticed you around / I find you very attractive / Would you go to bed with me?", reached #3 in the UK Singles Chart.[] It became a hit in Europe, particularly in Eastern Europe where the ensemble toured extensively. "Would You...?" has been included on such television show soundtracks as the American G String Divas and the British series As If. The track has also been sampled for San Pellegrino, Carlsberg, and Nokia advertisements.[2] The lyrics with almost identical wording were originally used as part of a psychological study conducted in 1978.[3]

"Straight... to Number One" was also featured in some advertisements, including one for Apple Computer's iTunes. The song was also featured in the first season of the American version of Queer As Folk. Touch and Go were popular in Eastern Europe, especially in Russia, playing some fifty concerts a year.[4] Since 2003, they travelled all major cities in Russia and ex-USSR countries from Moscow to Vladivostok. The band is being represented in the region by IKON exclusively. Their record producer, David Lowe, is the composer of all BBC News music since 1998. On November 13, 2011, they appeared as musical guests on X Factor (Romania).[5] A new album should come out in 2013.[citation needed]

Carleen Anderson (born 10 May 1957) is an American soul singer, who has had success in the United Kingdom. She is the daughter of the singer Vicki Anderson and stepdaughter of Bobby Byrd, and is most well known as the lead singer in the Young Disciples as well as for her own solo career.[3]

Early career
Anderson was raised by her paternal grandparents, David Sr. and Alberta Anderson, in Houston, Texas, during the civil rights movement in the 1960s. Pastor Andersons Pentecostal church was located in the Fifth Ward, Houston, populated by working class African-Americans, many of whom were migrant sharecroppers, and their descendants, from Louisiana. By the time Anderson was 3 years old, she was singing solos in front of the congregation. By the age of 7, Anderson was playing piano by ear, directing the church choir and writing church songs every week for the choir to sing before her grandfather would deliver his Sunday sermons. The gospel music atmosphere was enhanced

Carleen Anderson by Anderson having the benefit of her Aunt Betty Faye Anderson, soprano soloist for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Her Uncle, David Anderson Jr., and his daughters, Pamela and Jhelisa, along with their mother, Yvonne, had a very successful family gospel singing group that travelled the southern US states. Andersons birth father, Dr. Reuben Anderson Sr., is pastor of the Tower of Faith Evangelistic Church of God in Christ, in Compton California. Her mother is soul singer, Vicki Anderson who featured with James Brown during the 1960s and 1970s. Vicki Anderson (birth name, Myra Barnes) married Bobby Byrd (soul singer and childhood friend of James Brown) who formed a group with James Brown in the late 1950s called The Flames, which was later named, James Brown & The Famous Flames. After a brief marriage, Anderson gave birth to a son, Bobby Anderson, in 1979. After the divorce, Anderson lived as a single mother in Los Angeles where she received several scholarships to study classical and jazz music performance, as well as music education, at Los Angeles City College (LACC) and the University of Southern California (USC). Anderson also studied Creative Literature at the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA). During her studies, Anderson worked as a student tutor for extra income to support herself and her child. Andersons goal at the time was to become a music school teacher, but her plans were thwarted when President Ronald Reagan took music out of the curriculum in the government-sponsored schools. With only one semester left before completing her music degree, circumstances caused Anderson to take office-clerk jobs to make ends meet. In a 2005 Echoes magazine interview, Anderson says that a career in music performance was not at all on her agenda at that time. The following summer, after her Godfather, James Brown, was incarcerated in 1988, several artists from the James Brown Show toured worldwide as Bobby Byrd and the JB All Stars. It was the summer of 1989, and Anderson was asked to join the tour as the opening act. She saw this as an opportunity to have a working holiday in Europe with her son. With her brothers Bartlett Anderson on keyboards and Tony Byrd on drums, they continued touring with the collective until 1990. Whilst on the road, Anderson was the understudy for Vicki Anderson, Marva Whitney, Lyn Collins and Martha High, with additional tutelage by Maceo Parker, Pee Wee Ellis and Fred Wesley. Anderson met Marco Nelson and Femi Williams, who later formed the Young Disciples, on this tour with Bobby Byrd and the JB All Stars. Her first London performance of Denise Williams Free at the then Town and Country Club (now, the Kentish Town Forum, also known as the HMV Forum) so impressed the UK natives that DJ/bassist/music producer Marco Nelson and DJ/music producer Femi Williams suggested Anderson move to England to start a singing career. This was the first time Anderson even considered such a path, and it took some convincing. She was swayed when told she could get steady work as a session singer and a songwriter. Ultimately, Anderson was motivated by the positive impact she felt raising her son in the UK would have on his life, as she could sense the violent turbulence brewing in her sons birth town of Los Angeles, where they had lived for 10 years. In a 1998 Pride magazine interview, Anderson describes how she received much resistance from family members regarding to her relocating to the UK. However, the Rodney King riots that exploded soon after Andersons expatriation were proof, as far as she was concerned, that her decision to move was the right thing to do. Upon relocating with her son to the UK in the summer of 1990, Marco Nelson and Femi Williams introduced Anderson to the stirring UK underground music scene, which (for lack of a better name) was called Acid Jazz. Anderson sang lead and background vocals on a variety of music products in that season, including collaborations with Paul Weller, Bryan Ferry, Galliano, Guru and Courtney Pine, as well as recording under the assumed name of Mardou Fox for several white label releases for record producer, Eddie Pillar. Also in 1990, Gilles Peterson and Sir Norman Jay (both top UK-based internationally acclaimed DJs) were elected by the Talkin Loud record label to recruit new music acts. Peterson, Jay, Nelson and Williams already had a bond as fellow DJs, resulting in Peterson and Jay signing the Young Disciples. Marco Nelsons alliance with Paul Weller, gave the Young Disciples the advantage of recording in Wellers Marble Arch-located Solid Bond studio, where they recorded their album, Road to Freedom. The single release, Apparently Nothing, gained critical and commercial acclaim. Nelson and Williams focused on the production aspects of the music, shunning the promotional tasks required for marketing the project, which meant Anderson was courted by several record companies to pursue a solo career. This friction divided the musical group. With her priority as a single mother to provide a secure future for her son, Anderson felt her best

Carleen Anderson option was as a solo artist. In an October 2011 Jazz FM radio interview with BBC presenter, Jumoke Fashola, Anderson states that a solo music performance career, up until that time, had been the furthest thing from her mind.

96

Solo career
Through her association with the Young Disciples, Anderson met Ashley Newton, the then Circa label head, who later joined the Virgin Records music company. Amidst the variety of record companies vying to sign Anderson at the time, it was this previous meeting with Ashley Newton that led Anderson to sign with Virgin Records. Her first album was preceded by the marketing EP Dusky Sappho in 1993. The album True Spirit, released in 1994, had pop chart success with single releases Mama Said and Nervous Breakdown. Anderson wrote most of the songs on the album with some songs co-written with producer, Ian Green. Another single lifted from the album that charted well was Let It Last, co-written with Mark Nevin of Fairground Attraction. The album was nominated for a Best International Newcomer BRIT Award, in 1995. Anderson sang on the Red Hot Organizations compilation album, Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool, released in 1994 to promote awareness of the HIV epidemic in the African-American community. The album included numerous stellar artists and was heralded as Album of the Year by Time magazine. Andersons second solo album, Blessed Burden, released in 1998, was co-produced by Paul Weller. Anderson again wrote most of the songs with some co-written with Weller and a few covers. Weller supported Anderson in her creative extension, but the Virgin record company executives became disenchanted by the new direction of Andersons live music recordings, as they were in such direct contrast to the sampling and drum looping production techniques acquired from Andersons Young Disciple days, which were used as a format for her True Spirit album. Subsequently, Virgin dropped Anderson after the Blessed Burden album. During the recording of this album, Anderson forged alliances with the Brand New Heavies. After being dismissed from Virgin, Anderson accepted the offer from the Brand New Heavies to stand in for their lead singers, N'Dea Davenport and Siedah Garrett, to promote the Brand New Heavies best of album, Trunk Funk, from January 1999 to September 2000 on a worldwide tour.

Independent years
Whilst touring with the Brand New Heavies, Anderson formed a friendship with saxophonist, Ben Castle, son of the famed trumpeter, Roy Castle. Castle encouraged Anderson to continue her solo career via the independent route and provided the means for her to release her first independent album, Alberta's Granddaughter, in 2002, for which Anderson received a variety of favorable press reviews. The one single release from that album, a cover of Noel Gallaghers Dont Look Back in Anger, was a highly praised featured performance on her 2004-2005 tours with Courtney Pines British Council sponsored European events. In 2003, Ben Castle suggested the production skills of Mark Edwards and the engineering expertise of Colin Walker, alongside filmmaker, Tim Johnson and Andy Hutch, to record Andersons performance at the Glee Club in Birmingham, England. Live CD/DVD gaining critical media acclaim from magazines Mojo, Blues & Soul, as well as from the BBC. These acknowledgements led EMI to release a best of Carleen Anderson CD, entitled, Up To Now: The Best Of, in 2004, which included a variety of popular and rare performances across the length of Andersons career. In 2005, UK based, Dome Records, released Andersons Soul Providence CD, also co-produced by the Ben Castle, Mark Edwards and Colin Walker team. Soul Providence was composed entirely of Andersons self-penned songs, save for one, a cover of Leon Wares Wanna Be Where You Are. Anderson recorded this song first made famous by the Jackson Five in 1971 as a duet with Paul Weller. Another duet on Soul Providence is with Jocelyn Brown. Soul Providence was praised by Blues & Soul magazine, as Andersons best body of work since her Young Disciples days.

Carleen Anderson In 2006, Anderson sang at the Stables, the music forum established by Sir John Dankworth and Dame Cleo Laine. In the introduction for Anderson to sing with Sir John Dankworth and his band, Dame Cleo Laines enthusiasm sparked the interest of the Ronnie Scotts promoter who was in the audience. Since then, Anderson continues to have sold out audiences at Ronnie Scotts with residencies over several nights. A Live at Ronnies recording was made in 2010, but the release was delayed due to the tragic loss of the Ronnie Scotts house drummer, Chris Dagley, who was on the performance and died in a motor accident a few months after the recording. As the club and the band recover from the shock of their much loved and valued band member, they plan to release the Live at Ronnies CD, in 2012. Andersons vocal music also appears in the 2006 film, The Fall. From 2002 to 2007, Anderson taught vocal music at the Brighton Institute of Modern Music, where she was also Head of the Vocal Department. This association, led to the connection with theatre promoter, Julian Boast, who arranged for Anderson to sing for and meet HRH Queen Elizabeth at the Royal Theatre, Brighton, in 2007. In her 2010 interview on Paris TV show, One Shot Not, Anderson speaks of her initial plans to be a music teacher, without any consideration of ever having a career in music performance. Currently, Anderson is writing for her next studio album, scheduled for release in 2012, as well as preparing for a tour with her Soul Trio, with Anderson on keyboards and vocals, with a selection of highly regarded bass players and drummers. Andersons is managed by Jim Lawn at Clas Management. Andersons music company is Dusky Sappho Music.

Roy Ayers (born September 10, 1940) is an American funk, soul, and jazz composer and vibraphone player. Ayers began his career as a post-bop jazz artist, releasing several albums with Atlantic Records, before his tenure at Polydor Records beginning in the 1970s, during which he helped pioneer jazz-funk.[2]

Biography
Early life
Ayers was born in Los Angeles, California, and grew up in a musical family.[] At the age of five, he was given his first pair of vibraphone mallets by Lionel Hampton. The area of Los Angeles that Ayers grew up in, now known as "South Central" but then known as "South Park", was the epicenter of the Southern California Black music scene. The schools he attended (Wadsworth Elementary, Nevins Middle School, and Thomas Jefferson High School) were all close to the famed Central Avenue, Los Angeles' equivalent of Harlem's Lenox Avenue and Chicago's State Street. Roy would likely have been exposed to music as it not only emanated from the many nightclubs and bars in the area, but also poured out of many of the homes where the musicians who kept the scene alive lived in and around Central. His high school, Thomas Jefferson High School, produced some of the most talented new musicians, such as Dexter Gordon.

Career
Ayers was responsible for the highly regarded soundtrack to Jack Hill's 1973 blaxploitation film Coffy, which starred Pam Grier. He later moved from a jazz-funk sound to R&B, as seen on Mystic Voyage, which featured the songs "Evolution" and the underground disco hit "Brother Green (The Disco King)", as well as the title track from his 1976 album Everybody Loves the Sunshine. In 1977, Ayers produced an album by the group RAMP, Come Into Knowledge, commonly and mistakenly thought to stand for "Roy Ayers Music Project".[] That Fall, he had his biggest hit with "Running Away". In late 1979, Ayers scored his only top ten single on Billboard's Hot Disco/Dance chart with "Don't Stop The Feeling," which was also the leadoff single from his 1980 album "No Stranger to Love", whose title track was sampled in Jill Scott's 2001 song "Watching Me" from her debut album Who Is Jill Scott? In 1980, Ayers released Music Of Many Colors with the Nigerian Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti.[] In 1981, Ayers produced an album with the singer Sylvia Striplin, Give Me Your Love (Uno Melodic Records 1981).[] Ayers performed a solo on the John "Jellybean" Benitez production of Whitney Houston "Love Will Save The Day" from her second multi-platinum studio album Whitney. The single was released in July 1988 by Arista Records.

1990s to present
In 1992, Ayers released two albums, Drive and Wake Up, for the hip-hop label Ichiban Records.[] In 1993, Ayers appeared on the record Guru's Jazzmatazz Vol.1 featuring on the vibraphone in the song "Take a Look (At Yourself)". In 1994, Ayers appeared on the Red Hot Organization's compilation album Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool. The album, meant to raise awareness and funds in support of the AIDS epidemic in relation to the African-American community, was heralded as "Album of the Year" by Time Magazine. During the 2000s and 2010s, Ayers ventured into house music, collaborating with such stalwarts of the genre as Masters at Work and Kerri Chandler. Ayers started two record labels, Uno Melodic and Gold Mink Records. The first released several LPs, including Sylvia Striplin's, while the second folded after a few singles.[] Roy Ayers hosts the fictitious radio station "Fusion FM" in Grand Theft Auto IV (2008). Currently, there is a documentary in progress called the Roy Ayers Project featuring Ayers and many hip hop producers who have sampled his music and other people who have been influenced by him and his music. The documentary is planned for release in early 2014.

Nicola Conte is an Italian DJ, producer, guitarist, and bandleader, known initially for introducing an innovative style of acid jazz that incorporates bossa nova themes, melodies drawn from Italian film scores of the 1960s, easy listening themes, and ethnic Indian music. Recently, he has focused much more on latin jazz, in his albums Other Directions (2004, Blue Note & Schema) and Rituals (2008, Schema), and many remixes he has done for contemporaries stretching across many closely related genres. Conte, a classically-trained musician, is an innovative jazz revivalist and part of what was termed "The Fez Collective", based in the Italian town of Bari, and the Idizioni-Ishatr/Schema Records, a record label known for promoting a distinctly Italian approach to acid jazz as well as jazz music as a whole. Conte's first album was Jet Sounds of 2000. The single "Bossa per due" gained international recognition and was an underground hit. It was used within a short time for a prime-time commercial for Acura automobiles. The album was licensed for American distribution by Thievery Corporation's [ESL Records|Eighteenth Street Lounge (ESL)] label in the summer of 2001 as Bossa Per Due, and was a slightly reconfigured version of the Italian Jet Sounds album. This was followed by the Jet Sounds Revisited remix album in late 2002. Two years later, Blue Note's French subsidiary released Conte's next album Other Directions. In November 2008, Conte released his album, Rituals. In November 2009, Nicola released The Modern Sound of Nicola Conte - Versions in Jazz-Dub on Schema Records. Unlike his 2002 remix album which featured artists largely reworking his songs, this two-CD set had Nicola releasing original titles and featured some of his jazz styled remixes of other people's works. His album Love & Revolution was released in 2011. Conte has also produced albums by other artists such as Rosalia De Souza and Paolo Achenza Trio.

Associated acts Jamiroquai

Jay Kay (born Jason Lus Cheetham;[1] 30 December 1969) is a Grammy Award-winning English musician, best known as the lead singer of the acid jazz band Jamiroquai. He is sometimes incorrectly referred to as Jamiroquai, with a misconception existing that the band is actually a solo artist.

Early life
Kay was born in Stretford, Lancashire, England.[] Kay's mother, Karen Kay (born Adrianne Judith Pringle),[] is a former cabaret singer and television personality. Kay's biological father is Lus Saraiva, a Portuguese former professional guitarist,[] whom Kay did not meet until 2001. After Jay Kay's identical twin, David, died some weeks after they were born,[2] Karen brought Kay up largely alone, which gave him "an itinerant childhood, half of it living in 'rural Suffolk and rural Devon", according to his 2010 The Daily Telegraph interview[3] and his 1994/1999 television interviews.[4] It is stated in the 1997 Lancashire Evening Telegraph article that Kay "moved with his mother and step-father Mervyn Kay to Manchester as a youngster."[5] James Royal, often misidentified as Kay's stepfather, is Karen Kay's former manager whom she had a relationship with some time during Kay's childhood years. Royal had stated in his 2002 interview in News of the World about 13-year-old Kay's six-month stay in Thailand that he never married Karen Kay, but "still regards" Kay as his "stepson".[6] Kay attended Oakham School in Rutland.[7]

Career
Kay formed Jamiroquai with members Toby Smith (keyboards), Stuart Zender (bass), Nick Van Gelder (drums) and Wallis Buchanan (didgeridoo) together with guest appearances by Gavin Dodds (guitar), Maurizio Ravelico (percussion) and Johnny Thirkell (horns) amongst others, both on the band's debut album and on their first tour. Jamiroquai has sold over thirty million albums, and has spent a collective 162 weeks on the UK singles chart between 1992 and 2006 with Kay's personal wealth said to be around 40million.[] He appeared on the Sunday Times Rich List 2004 at joint-950th. The Sunday Times Rich List 2008 has him tied for #1,794, with 40million. After the huge success of Jamiroquai's first single, When You Gonna Learn, a US$1.9million, eight album deal was signed with Sony Music Entertainment. The band's first album was Emergency on Planet Earth. The relationship with Sony ended in 2007.[] The band's third album, Travelling Without Moving, generated international attention with the ground breaking video of Virtual Insanity which earned Jamiroquai four MTV Video Music Awards. Since then, their fourth album, Synkronized, has done just as well; it was recorded in Kay's home studio located in the garden of his 500-year-old, 11-bedroom Buckinghamshire mansion. Kay has previously stated that he would like his band to continue writing music for another 1520 years. However it was reported in February 2007 that Kay had wanted to quit music.[] This was denied on Jamiroquai's official website the day after.

Headgear
Kay is well known for his array of elaborate hats and headgear. When appearing professionally (in concerts, interviews etc.) he has been referred to as "the mad hatter" for his love of headgear.[8] It is said that he has many different hats that he wears at concerts and in public.[9] He has stated publicly that some of them were made by his own mother.[citation needed] Kay's most recognizable headgear is his mirrored "feather headdress" seen on the cover of High Times: Singles 19922006.

TV performances
Kay appeared in an episode of the BBC series The Naked Chef alongside chef Jamie Oliver. He has also performed on the series Strictly Come Dancing singing Canned Heat. He also appeared four times in the BBC car show Top Gear. The first appearance was in Series 1 episode 2, where he set a lap time of 1:48.1 for the show's "Star in a reasonably priced car", becoming the leading highscorer for the rest of the current and most of the next series. His second appearance was in Series 3 episode 4, where he drove his Lamborghini Miura with Richard Hammond as passenger. The third appearance was in Series 11 episode 6, where he came in to beat the top time held by Simon Cowell. He succeeded with a lap time of 1:45.8. Jay Kay won Top Gear's "John Sergeant Award" for the best dance after learning his time on the Top Gear test track and the fastest lap time in 2008. The day before Jamiroquai performed their new single, White Knuckle Ride, on The X Factor on 31 October 2010, Kay was quoted by The Sun as saying of the show's judges Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue: "What are they going to tell me about fucking music? ... When have you ever done anything? You're useless. The pair of you. I mean you look great and I'd like to fucking shag you but that's all." During his performance on the show, the pair talked continuously and refused to applaud at the end. Notably, neither of the other two judges stood up either.[10]

Paparazzi confrontations
In 2001, Kay was charged with assaulting a photographer and damaging his camera outside a nightclub. Kay pleaded not guilty and the charges were later dropped.[11] On 12 September 2006, Kay was cautioned by police over an incident outside a London nightclub. He allegedly assaulted two photographers.[12]

Personal life
Kay is anti-religious.[13] From 1998 to 2001, Kay dated Denise Van Outen. They were engaged and reported to be on the verge of marriage,[14] but split up in 2001; Jamiroquai's album A Funk Odyssey is mostly about their breakup. In a 2010 interview, Kay indicated that at one time he had a "substantial" cocaine habit. He has however been free of drugs since 2003.[15] Kay continues to support the Burma Campaign UK and the need for democracy in Burma. He is also a patron of the Captive Animals Protection Society, a charity campaigning for an end to the use of animals in circuses, zoos and exotic pet trade. He has spoken out against animal exploitation for entertainment.[16]

Cars and vehicles


Kay has a strong interest in exotic cars and has owned over 60 luxury cars, mainly sports cars. His love of cars was expressed with the release of the album Travelling Without Moving. The album's cover featured an adaptation of the "Buffalo Man" logo and the Ferrari crest, In 2011 he visited Maranello for an exclusive viewing of the then-new Ferrari 458 Spider.[17] Three of his cars appeared in the video for the song Cosmic Girl. In total he has 68 vehicles, including what he calls "staff cars" and a 'one off' Ferrari.[18] A combination of cars and music is also evident in the song Black Devil Car on the album Dynamite which is a tribute to his black Ferrari Enzo. The Enzo suffered damage to the windows after an altercation with hotel chef Aaron Billington at the Brudenell Hotel in Aldeburgh, Suffolk.[19] In addition to his well-known large collection of Ferraris, Kay has more recently professed to becoming a fan of Porsche cars. He now owns a black 356 Speedster, a blue 911 Carrera RS, and a 911 GT3 RS in orange livery. A 1973 Porsche Carrera RS has been used in the clip of "White Knuckle Ride", one of the last singles of the band, included in their last album. Kay's love of fast cars has occasionally landed him in legal trouble. In May 1998, Kay was caught driving at 111mph (179km/h) and his licence was suspended for 42 days. He said in an interview: "I should count myself lucky. I've clocked up 175 mph on a public road. If I'd been caught doing that, it would have been a prison sentence." He appeared in court in Scotland to face charges for speeding after being clocked at 105mph (169km/h) in a Mercedes-Benz G-Class, on 26 February 2004. The speed limit for the road was 70mph (110km/h). He was later banned from driving for six months. Kay participated in the 2007 Gumball 3000 rally as part of Team Adidas in a brand new Maserati Quattroporte. In 2010 he took part in the Mille Miglia in his Maserati A6G/54. He holds the record on the BBC show Top Gear for the fastest lap in the (now retired) Chevrolet Lacetti on the "Star in a Reasonably-Priced Car" segment. His time of 1:45.83 was four-hundredths of a second ahead of Kevin McCloud, one-tenth of a second ahead of Brian Johnson, lead singer of the rock band AC/DC, and one tenth of a second above then-leader, Simon Cowell. He was invited back as Cowell had been "on the top for long enough". Kay also competed in the Celebrity Challenge race at the 2012 Silverstone Classic finishing third behind Brian Johnson and Kelvin Fletcher. Kay is also a motorcycle enthusiast and attended the Ace Cafe to see Charley Boorman off for his television series By Any Means. He rides a Rizla Suzuki GSXR-600. He owns a motorhome, and holds a C LGV (class 2) driving

Jay Kay licence in order to legally drive it. He reportedly persuaded his close friend James Martin to also purchase one. Kay also leases a Robinson R44 helicopter, registration G-JKAY.

Gota Yashiki is both an independent acid jazz artist and drum/bass player, as a member of the band Simply Red. He was born in Kyoto, Japan, on 26 February 1962, where at a young age he learned how to play traditional Japanese drums. This interest in drumming propelled him into the music scene, and he moved to Tokyo in 1982 to join a reggae/dub band that became known as Mute Beat. Together with Mute Beat band member Kazufumi Kodama he worked on various projects and formed the duo Kodama & Gota. From 1986 on, Gota entered the European music scene. After spending some time back in Tokyo, he returned to London in 1988 and began collaborating with numerous well-known artists, including Soul II Soul, Sinad O'Connor and Seal, while also working on film soundtracks and re-mixes. Gota joined Simply Red in 1991 for the recording of the album Stars and the following world tour.[] In late 1993, he released an album entitled Something to Talk About under the name Gota & The Heart of Gold, and helped fellow Simply Red band member Heitor T.P. release a solo album in 1994. While still working regularly with various European artists, including an album by singer songwriter Chris Braide, he recorded another album as Gota & The Low Dog in 1995 with singer Warren Dowd. This album, named Live Wired Electro, was released in several countries and took Gota on his first solo Japanese tour. Alanis Morissette credits Gota as "Groove Activator" on her album Jagged Little Pill, for which samples of his works were used. Also, UK dance act Chicane used his drum samples, most prominent on the Chicane Mix of the Bryan Adams song Cloud Number Nine. In 1997, he released his first album in the United States entitled It's so Different Here. The albums hit single was a top ten Smooth Jazz track of the year. The album went to No. 15 on the Billboard, and No. 1 on the R&R chart. He also assisted Depeche Mode in the studio in 1997, appearing on their eagerly awaited 1997 album "Ultra". Gota then helped produce Simply Red's album entitled Blue the following year in 1998 and subsequently assisted the following year's release Love and The Russian Winter. He released two albums in 1999, the first entitled Let's Get Started, and the second entitled Day & Night. His most recent album The Best of Gota was released in 2002, and he is currently working on a joint project with Jimmy Gomez whose release date is still unknown. In 2004 to celebrate the first centenary of FIFA he made some arregements to the anthem composed by Franz Lambert in 1994 and is the one heard in all the FIFA officially sanctioned matches since then.[2] In March 2008, Gota formed the rock band Vitamin-Q along with Masami Tsuchiya, Kazuhiko Kato, Rei Ohara and Anza. However, after Kato's suicide on October 17, 2009, the fate of the group is uncertain.
