Various Artists: Groove Jammy 2

Essentially a compilation of ’70s electric-blue funky jazz (Carlos Garnett, Les McCann) Groove Jammy 2 (32 Jazz, 32124, 47:52) is subtly nuanced-looped-phased into the new by DJ/producer Mocean Worker. Back in 1990, acid jazz music was strictly about ’70s jazz-funk records and Pucho-Headhunters-Johnny Hammond club jam bands. Today, it’s an ill-fitting rubric for any music (Groove Collective to Erykah Badu) with jazzy horns, funky beats and a Fender Rhodes.
