Jazz Funk has been about since the early 1970s. It is basically a fusion of Jazz and Funk hence the name and was pioneered in the UK by a DJ called Chris Hill.
Chris was always looking for something new and had a well established reputation for his swing nights at the Goldmine on Canvey Island and the Lacy Lady in Ilford. He was the driving force in the clubs
of what was to become Jazz Funk and after he introduced it to those clubs it was soon picked up on by many other DJ's.
Chris was part of the Soul Mafia alongside Robbie Vincent, Tom Holland, Sean French, Chris Brown and Greg Edwards all backed up by the late Froggy and his roadshow, when they all appeared at Caister.
These were the days when a lot of club music was just that, it was played and heard only in the clubs, although a few tracks would break through chart wise.
Dance floors would be packed with people enjoying that mix of styles which had an infectious beat that just made you want to dance.
I am sure people of a certain generation remember the scene and the music in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
We have a wide range of such music inc artists like Ronnie Laws, Willie Bobo, Barrabas, Earl Klugh, Deodato, Fatback Band, George Duke, Brass Construction, Hiroshi Fukamura, Cayenne,
Level 42 and Airto Moreira.
