Various Artists Version Excursion
- Words: Peter Nicholson
- Label: Counterpoint
Counterpoint has over 10 years of experience putting together killer compilations like Disco Juice and Jazz Bizniz. Rest assured their producer buddies (Yam Who?, Beatfanatic) had plenty to work with when turned loose in the vaults for this collection of re-versions. There‘s a little bit of everything, from the choppy, gloriously spastic vocals of Les Gammas‘ take on Sheila Landis‘ broken beat "Parenthe-Seizure" to a typically slick and swaying Nicola Conte bossa remix of Sunaga T Experience‘s "It‘s You." But everything meshes together nicely with a shared jazz/dance sensibility that emphasizes chops as much as beats.
