Various Artists Jazz Toys 2
- Words: Velanche Stewart
- Label: Perfect Toy
Between issuing his label‘s steady output of quality EPs, artist albums, and compilations, Marcus Hacker has found time to compile the second edition of the Jazz Toys series, which (like JCR‘s Formation 60 comp) focuses entirely on rare and funky ‘70s German jazz. Hacker lovingly compiles a stellar batch from his rare 45s collection including the beautifully composed "The Pawn" by the Heikki Sarmento Big Band to smoking covers such as Wendy & the Nolan Ranger Orchestra‘s version of "Fever." Jazz Toys 2 is another peak into the fascinating mojo of post-war German jazz-funk.
