Jazzman Gerald pres: Let's BOOGALOO VOL.5Published on Martedì, 20 Aprile 2010
"Let's Boogaloo" is back! It's been three years since the last edition compiled by DJ Andy Smith but finally Volume 5 of this much-loved collection is ready to be released! "Let's Boogaloo Vol.5" will be available on CD/LP/Digital download in all the best stores worldwide from April 19th, but can already be ordered or downloaded in advance exclusively here on the RK website! For this latest installment the man behind the music is none other than the great record collector, DJ and founder of Jazzman Records Gerald Short, better known as Jazzman Gerald.
Jazzman Gerald begins collecting funk and soul at the end of the 80's, and about a decade later founds what will become a world-renown and cult label, with over 200 releases on 45 and a series of rare funk, soul and jazzdance reissues. It is therefore no surprise that Mr. Short's selection of tunes for "Let's Boogaloo Vol.5" is an eclectic array of the finest old and new deep funk, rare soul, modish R&B, titty-shakers and jazzy 45s that you have probably never heard before! From the fast-paced version of "K-Gee" by Floyd Lawson & The Hearts Of Stone, to Patril Staten's northern soul classic "Little Love Affair" to new Japanese sensation Mountain Mocha Kilimajaro and lo-fi gospel funk band All Nation Quartet, these 17 tracks are guaranteed to keep you and your ears happy whether relaxing at home or shuffling your feet on the dancefloor.
To celebrate the release of "Let's Boogaloo Vol.5", Record Kicks label chief Nick Recordkicks and Jazzman Gerald will be taking part in a number of album launch parties across Europe, beginning on the 17th of April at Connie Douglas Club in Milan, followed by the 24th of April at Dex Club in London alongside DJ Andy Smith and Tim K, the 30th of April at Mojo Club in Cologne together with Oliver Korthals and Diesler, May 13th at Marula Club in Madrid, and terminating at Marula Club in Barcelona on the 14th of May.
