Various Artists King Britt presents Jazzmental
- Words: Peter Nicholson
- Label: Slip‘n‘ Slide
At first glance, this collection of broken jazz joints seems a bit underwhelming-a two-year old Ennio Morricone remix and two cuts out of 12 from the same artist don‘t bode well-but Philly don King Britt delivers in the end. Aside from the expected (Bugz‘s sing-a-long anthem "Booty La La" and a super-smooth Basement Boys re-rub of Fertile Ground‘s "Living in the Light"), King comes correct with lesser known gems, including a rattling rap from Jneiro Jarel and Champion Soul plus "Our Time," his own superb soul excursion with Lizz Fields.
