'Music for Jazz Dancers' is a selection of hot & exclusive tunes taken directly from DJ Adrian Gibsons' sets at 'Messin' Around', the club he has been running for 14 years with DJ Perry Louis (who is also the leader of the Jazz CoTech Dancers)

The UK Jazz-Dance Scene is a uniquely positioned scene that has sent shock waves around the world and influenced countless artists, DJ's and Dancers. Despite this, it is surprisingly sparsely documented with regards to CD's, Books and articles detailing the songs, dance moves, key DJ's, dancers and clubs. Luckily, we recently had the fantastic 'From Jazz Funk & Fusion to Acid Jazz' by Freestyle recording artist/DJ and now author Mark 'Snowboy' Cotgrove'

Peter Herbolzheimer's Rhythm Combination & Brass featuring Dianne Reeves kick off the CD with a storming rendition of the Ray Noble jazz standard 'Cherokee' which was initially made famous by Charlie Parker. Other highlights include Primo & the Groupe's 'A Child Runs Free', a wonderful modern take on Fred Johnson's notoriously rare Vocal Jazz track, and Marcos Ariel's 'Samba Torto' which is Brazilian Samba-Fusion of the highest order.

Music For Jazz Dancers draws together be-bop, nu-jazz, big band and samba/jazz fusion sounds, the common denominator being that they all inspire hot heeled hoofers to throw jazz shapes across discerning dancefloors the world over! If you like what you have heard you can visit some of the Jazz-Dance clubs like 'Shiftless Shuffle' or 'Out To Lunch' to experience the music and atmosphere for yourself.
